Do yourself a favor and watch this video, and if you can’t figure out what’s going on read the description below. Prepare for your mind to be blown.
What you’re seeing:
A kinect is looking at a sandbox, it takes in the height of the dirt piles in relation to each other and projects a corresponding landscape to it. When you dig deep, it fills with blue because of water, the deeper it is, the darker the water is. If you stick a hole into a mountain and turn it into a volcano lava starts coming out. It does this all in real time so the landscape changes as you play around with it. It’s like real life minecraft. Awesome? Damn. Straight.
