Kinect by Xbox 360 is a unique piece of technology and it seems it is doing much better in the hands of designers and programmers as their mediocre line-up of games. One particular project is by New Zealand-based company called Assembly where they gathered musicians, programmers and artists to make The V Motion Project. Using 2 Kinect devices and a whole load of programming, they made a man play music through a projected video that both ...

This is a truly unique video and one that pushes technology further. Created by Daniel Franke & Cedric Kiefer, this project is a technology heaven, what the video is about is simply a dancer created out of little tiny particles that flow in the air like ashes as you see her dance and fade into her next move.

Before I go into details on the technological aspect of this video, this is actually a music video for the song Chase No Face by BELL and the song is very focused on the vocals and I think it is beautiful. Onto the technology part, this is a first, we’ve seen projections on buildings and mostly static structures, but this one is on a face that is moving and singing. Besides the challenge of the shape ...

The story of the game isn’t necessary but it is there, you play as a savior of Eden, a computer memory of Earth being attacked by forces of evil. What you do in the game is simple, shoot evil using one hand at a time. The right hand targets and you ...
