Manipulating lighting bolts has long been relegated to magicians and mad scientists. But not any more thanks to this Microsoft Kinect hack that pairs it with a set of Tesla coils, and maps the outgoing electricity with the “players” hand position. It looks pretty sinister but we assure you it’s in good fun.
The setup calls for the user to stand about 5-10 feet in front of the coils and flail their hands in any crazed fashion they feel is suitable to their mood or motives. Honestly, though, we we’re hoping for a slightly more compelling mapping experience, but this should suffice until the second iteration, assuming they’re planning on one.
