Mehmet Akten, founder of The Mega Super Awesome Visuals Company has managed to build a drawing program which tracks his hand movements in 3D space, thereby giving him a 3-dimensional canvas to paint on.
The video shows a never before seen accuracy and simplicity in tracking 3D objects in space and shows some serious potential. Mehmet uses one hand to draw and both hands to rotate the view. This drawing app was created using libfreenect and ofxKinect libraries.
The video shows us a peek of the kind of app that iron man would consider worthy of using to paint on his 3D canvas..
