Abstract/Artist Statement

Since the release of Minecraft, the only options for playing the game have been through a keyboard and mouse or through a game controller. With the integration of Xbox’s Kinect technology we open up a new frontier for playing this incredible game. Simple gestures and motions, performed with the user’s whole body, will allow the user to navigate and interact with the Minecraft environment on a personal level. Using our interface, you will become one with your avatar as you walk, mine, build, and fight, as though you are in the game itself in a full body experience. Now as you invest hours in your Minecraft world, not only will you have been up and moving, but your world will be more immersive and impressive to yourself and those around you.
