Geeks, gamers and everyone in between have been buzzing about the new "hacked" Kinect being used to play the lord of all RPGs, World of Warcraft.Scratching your head? Up until recently, we were too.
Developed by a team from USC Institute for Creative Technologies, FAASTtakes Kinect and allows users to play Warcraft using hand and body gestures. You can lean forward to make Garrosh, Thrall and company run; swipe your left hand in the air to move the camera or raise your hands to fire on a target. This Flexible Action and Articulated Skeleton Toolkit is revolutionizing the gaming world as we speak. Developers aren't stopping there. The team hopes to squeeze more from this free Kinect "middleware." One thing's for sure, it's about time there's technology that will get WoW players off their asses.
