Soak, Dye in Light

A bit of a confession – I bought a Kinect. Don’t know what a Kinect is? It’s Microsoft’s motion control system for the Xbox 360. I only got it to go with Tetsuya Mizuguchi’s lovely Child of Eden, and I’m still not sure about it. I like the idea but it just feels a little laggy and imprecise.

It’s not great as a game controller, but it’s still a fab little piece of hardware that people have been quick to hack and play around with. Packing two cameras – one of them infra-red for depth finding –it’s proved a bit of a hit with people using it to create their own interactive applications, and Soak is one of the best I’ve seen.
