Kinposer was a hack project produced during a 36 hour hackathon at Hackference 2013. Unfortunately, it wasn’t entirely completed, so we haven’t open sourced the code just yet.

The idea was to create a Microsoft Kinect based audio manipulator using the Soundcloud API to essentially produce a cool ‘composer’ like effect with the music to control pitch, tempo, and other various music type things. Basic functionality for these existed near the end of the 36 hour period, but not entirely and reliably functional.

We hope to revisit this project again in the future, but for now, this is just here as a reminder of the project and the idea. Please feel free to pinch the idea and run with it, we’d love to see any examples of this in the wild if this type of idea inspires you!
