What Does Kinect Look Like Through Infrared Goggles?

November 5, 2010, By Christian Davis

If you’ve never thought about doing that before, you’ll be happy this guy did. There’s a Youtube video around that shows what the newly released Kinect experience looks like through the use of infrared goggles.

The guy filming the video uses Modern Warfare 2’s infrared goggles that came with the games Prestige Edition. What’s the result? It’s quite fascinating actually. What you’ll see is literally thousands of dots all over your floor and furniture. The dots show where the Kinect sensor will read you.

It’s a cool experiment that everyone should try if they have the materials to do so. The Xbox 360  Kinect sensor was just released yesterday and it’s going to set the way for motion controlled gaming. The fact that a controller isn’t used and the player has to use his body to control everything really sets this apart from everything else being that it’s the first of it’s kind.

Check out the video below.
