libfreenect, three months in

it's been three months,
we're already telling students,
"you need to threshold the depth image"
and waving around our kinect for a more complete perspective

now go get your kinect
and put it in the same spot you put it
when you first brought it home.

do you remember the feeling
of a new eye in your house?
a welcome intruder?

watch it sitting there and try to remember
the feeling that things are somehow "more 3d"
now that the computer can see it too.

when you first brought it home
was it pointing away from you?
proving itself to you,
identifying the scale of a scene
larger than itself?

it's been three months,
which direction are you pointing it now?
