Watch Kinect, iPad and augmented reality SDK create Star Wars holograms

A Kinect hack which uses Kinect, an iPad and an augmented reality SDK, lets you create your very own version of that blue hologram Princess Leia used to cry: “Help me Obi Wan!”.

The hack put together by the iPhone app creators at LAAN Labs, is pretty extensive in a sense that the guys have tweaked the hardware, and used the String SDK to turn 3D data grabbed by Kinect into a AR image on the iPad. Check out the video:

Happy Kinecting! --------
