Kinect hacks now being used to drive roleplaying sex games

first_imgIt was only a matter of time before it happened, but the Kinect has already been hacked to be the interface for a sex game.The demonstration comes from ThriXXX software, a development house that makes 3D role-playing sex simulation games, who are now working on a game that allows you to grope a polygonal hussy in real time using the Kinect.The demo video — which has since been removed from YouTube — showed how the Kinect’s sophisticated gesture detection systems can be used to allow you to feel up a girl in a bikini. One imagines the prototype will expand from there to allow for even more lurid manipulation.In their statement, ThriXXX software says that “the open-sourcing of device drivers for Kinect have enabled the…device to be used directly from connected PCs operating on Windows 7…The Kinect interface provides another exciting interface option for users of the sex simulation software to control the experience in extraordinary new ways. Controller-free is the next generation of game user interfaces, allowing users to use gestures, spoken commands, or objects to control in-game action that creates a completely new sex game activity and magical experience.”Of course, whether or not ThriXXX can actually sell software based on this technology is a legal gray area, at best. “We do not have permission from anyone on any of this stuff, and have been using stuff from the hacker community to do a working prototype, following what [is] going on in that world,” ThriXXX said. “There’s been some question about whether you can use the Kinect in commercial projects,” he said. “I don’t quite understand it myself, since I’m not sure you can [control, through end-user license agreements,] hardware like that, but it’s something that needs a nice lawyer response.”My guess is Microsoft will fight this kind of stuff, if only because they don’t want the Kinect becoming synonymous with dry humping imaginary virtual girls.Read more at CNetlast_img read more
