New Manga Generator using Kinect 3D

8 08 2013

I’ve been busy preparing for my new job as a lecturer in Digital Media in Canterbury Christ Church university, but I couldn’t resist posting a link to this remarkable concept.

Combining preset manga backdrops, objects, and speed lines, a ‘player’ can pose in front of the Kinect 3D camera, which then translates his movements into a live motion manga comic. The generator also recognises specific player poses to reveal dynamic speed lines and atmospheric backdrops.
