Kung-fu Live

Kung-fu Live is a game that would let you immerse in the gameplay. It isn’t simply customizable, but customizable to the extent that your character in the game can be you in a digital avatar. Patented technology of the Helsinki based Virtual Air Guitar Company Ltd. allows a webcam to replace the game controller.

With the webcam taking on the role of the controller, players themselves are transformed into gaming characters, albeit with the “abilities” the character would have. Apparently, the system is capable of doing real-time monitoring of the human body, and differentiate background and other visual issues from the player. Freemotion technology used in the game seems to be ready for primetime as the game itself is scheduled for a launch later this year.
