I was visiting our friend Vivek’s site over at Security Tube and found this stunning Defcon 20 Kinectasploit v2 demonstration by Jeff Bryner. I have never seen Kinectasploit before, so this was quite a treat.
Kinectasploit is a Blender 3D first person shooter game environment that looks like the Matrix construct room. But instead of racks of weapons, you have access to 20 security programs. And with a combination of movement and hand gestures you choose a target network system, and then run nmap, Nessus, Ettercap or any of the other included security programs.
Jeff runs P0wnlabs an interesting looking online lab where you can learn and try out your mad hacking Skillz.
If you want to play with Kinectasploit, Jeff provides a Github page with all necessary software.
This really has to be seen to be believed. Great job Jeff!
Another Xbox Kinect hack, this one for the PS3!
Shantanu Goel demonstrates the software he has been working on to get the Kinect to work with “Killzone 3” on his PS3. The video shows him navigating the game by only using the Kinect.
Shantanu has released the software he used and instructions on PSGroove.
Well, its about time. I mean, come on the Xbox Kinect visual system was hacked two weeks ago. Geez…
Okay, kidding aside, this has to be one of the fastest turn arounds of technology that I have ever seen. Just two weeks after the Xbox Kinect was hacked, Philipp Robbel, of MIT’s Personal Robotics Group, created one of the first functional robots using the kinect.
The Robot, made with an iRobot base, performs wireless 3D mapping and can detect and respond to visual directions. Amazing, and this is just the beginning. Expect this technology to develop very rapidly. In a few months we should see some very amazing things.
Thanks again to Bill at iElmira.com for the heads up!
Amazing video of the 3D capabilities of the Kinect. Wow, this is really something. This will open up a lot of possibilities for 3d projects and especially hobby robotics.
Think of it as eyes for your robot!
Thanks to my buddy Bill at iElmira.com for the heads up on this.
