Developer Florian Echtler at TISCH (Tangible Interactive Surfaces for Collaboration between Humans) has hacked Microsoft's Kinect to create a simple proof-of-concept HD video of using a hacked Kinect camera for multitouch-like interaction. Written using libfreenect and libTISCH (http://tisch.sf.net).

Echtler accomplished the hack by hooking the open source Kinect driver that's floating around the web to his custom multitouch software library. His hack is rough, but functional, and it's definitely a sign that Microsoft could eventually offer the same sort of multitouch functionality for browsing pictures directly on the Xbox 360.

This was done on Ubuntu Linux using libfreenect and libTISCH.
