Kinect 'augments' Bulgarian airbags

Virtual chesticle enhancer looks swell

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

A Japanese developer has augmented what is, arguably, the only thing worth augmenting: virtual breast enhancements with real physics, courtesy of Microsoft Kinect.

Using the body-detecting features of the Kinnect, Ningen Inc has managed to overlay virtual breasts onto the real ones of people in shot, enabling men and women alike to inflate their assets with the universally-recognised strong-man gesture:

We're again grateful to Penn Olson for the translation, but in this instance feel the developer's own English captures the effect better:

"Using Kinect, is a virtual big breasts. 'Marker-less' representation '3D' Advanced 'touch busty' 'several people play' features and so on."

Sure enough the video shows people happily prodding each other's virtual funbags, along with a slightly disturbing demonstration of one of the developers testing the code.

But even more disturbing, in the closing seconds, is the demonstration of what the software can do when the subject is topless – we'd recommend a stiff drink and a rapid return to reality following that. ®
