Playing WoW with Kinect

There are a lot of projects using Kinect for much more than simple game playing, but today I present you a project that uses the Kinect to do just that: playing games - more precisely using Kinect to play World of Warcraft.

Using OpenNI, the system can precisely monitor a person's movement and position and assign virtual key presses to any movement/position you wish. So, not only can you control your Warcraft avatar without touching a keyboard or game controller, allowing for a much more immersive experience, you could even use the same system for any other game or program of your liking.
