Hands of God

“Hands of God” is a weekend project exploring the potential of combining Microsoft Kinect with Processing tools. It uses a Kinect and Processing code to create a game that combines gestures in physical space with a visual output.

The modest task of the player is to create the world and populate it with all living things. The Kinect identifies the position of the players hands and maps them to the godly hands on the screen. By swiping the hands across the black void, the player wipes in paradise and places plants, animals and humans into it.

If the player is unhappy with the result, he or she may also use audio input to control their world. A loud shout or the stomp of a foot channels the players anger to unleash a horrid plague on their world.
