Kinect Flock is a quick app we wrote using the user tracking and depth mapping abilities of the XBox Kinect for Golan Levin's Interactive art + Computational design studio.

We created a particle system that exhibits flocking/swarming behavior when the user is moving, and flocks to and fills out the user's silhouette when they are standing still. As a result we have a simulation that ebbs and flows between the recognizable and the abstract.

Built using Cinder + OpenNI + NITE + Xbox Kinect
