Modder hacks Kinect to run PS3 XMB and Killzone 3

A modder by the name of Shantanu Goel has released a video demonstrating his pre-alpha code hack for Microsoft Kinect, enabling him to use the controller-free motion sensor as an input device to run PlayStation 3’s XMB and play Killzone 3.

According to his website, the code is still in a very early state, with much of it needing some improvements and tweaks.

"The axis performance specially needs lot of tweaking and it works well only while sitting," Goel wrote. "Putting this out purely as a proof of concept. For the things that I plan to add soon."
