Kinect support headed to Garry’s Mod

Garry's Mod gets Kinect support


Popular Source Engine sandbox Garry’s Mod will be updated with support for Xbox 360 motion sensor Kinect “this week or next”, creator Garry Newman has announced.

PCGamesN spotted the above video on YouTube, and a blog post in which Newman explains how he has adapted the Kinect for Windows SDK to work in Garry’s Mod.

The results – allowing players to control ragdolls with gesture controls – are, if we’re honest, a little creepy, and should make the machinima videos for which Garry’s Mod is famed even more disturbing. Kinect will even work in multiplayer, so we’re looking forward to seeing some drunken, wobbly synchronised dance routines being performed by the Team Fortress 2 cast.
