Kinect hack turns On Paper Doodles into Virtual synthesizer

Kinect hacker "roboczar" has created an application using Kinect of course(one he wrote at MIT and applied in tandem with other open-source code), that turns doodles(odd shapes) drawn on a simple piece of paper into into a synthesizer. The hack works by recognizing shapes drawn on the page as sound buttons. The Kinect sensor scans the paper and visualizes it into a musical instrument.

See for yourself, just touching the odd shapes drawn on paper, presses corresponding shape in the virtual synthesizer and a sound emerges. --------
