Microsoft’s Kinect for Xbox 360 has gone beyond movement games to be taken up by dancers and other artists. Often the Kinect itself is modified to expand its capabilities. You can see multiple examples of Kinect dance experiment via the links at the end of this post.

Over the summer The V Motion Project took place in Auckland, New Zealand. Combining the Kinect with dubstep music in an outdoor environment, the project was sponsored by New Zealand’s Frucor, makers of V energy drink.

The above official music video features the song “Can’t Help Myself” by producer Joel Little. You can download the song for free here.

Hip hop and tap dancer Joshua Cesan is the dancer in the above video.
