Today's project is a real fun project that shows off some serious C++ Kinect magic...
This is a Kinect Hack that allows you to Transform yourself to Ultra Seven.
This program may freeze or crash on your computer. It may be caused by a bug, your GPU's capability, your graphic driver, or any other possibilities. I cannot tell you exactly why it happens and how you can workaround it, but I will make any information available on this site as far as known. Please come back often and check the latest information. Your cooperation and patience would be much appreciated.
- (5/22/2011) Tested on Kinect SDK 1.5. Working fine.
- (4/23/2011 V1.0a) Kinect SDK version that works without OpenNI is coming up! The transformation pose is now changed to the motion of putting the Ultra Eye on instead of the Psi pose.
- (9/18/2011 V0.1f) Minor screen size related enhancements and readme fixes. Now the app runs in full screen by hitting ENTER key.
- (1/9/2011 V0.1a) First release!
Run this program on Windows PC with fairly fast CPU and fairly advanced GPU (with at least OpenGL 2.0 and programmable shader capabilities). WorkingConfigurations page lists the configurations this program is reported to work on. Please let me know of your configuration by a comment on the same page.
If you have any problems, please look at FAQ page for solution. If it does not solve the problem, feel free to report them at Issues, or just come back some time later to check if your issues are resolved. Because this program does not have much exposure to other configurations yet than I have, it will take some time to become stable.
If you have any other comments, please leave them at Comments page.
This version supports the following Ultra Sever's superpowers:
Transform by the pose of putting Ultra Eye on
Emerium Beam (A/B type)
Eye Slugger (throw, hold, and Ultra Knock Attack)
Time limit and flying back
Thanks to panzerNEWB for nice Eye Slugger model.
