Kinect Hacked To Awkwardly Play Super Mario Bros

It may not be the most elegant way to play the old Super Mario Bros, but this Kinect hack goes a long way to help visualize what’s possible. It’s also requires a lot more physical effort than most gamers would probably be comfortable with:

“I programmed it to recognize my motions and passed the virtual button presses to the NES emulator,” says Yankeyan. “I could have placed a simulated keypad right in front of me that I can press with my hands, but I thought full body gestures were more in the spirit of Kinect. Of course, Mario isn’t designed to be played like this, so this is really really hard.”
