I also saw a show that had a segment on the xbox kinect(LEAP not out yet) and they were basically showing all of these new uses that people were developing for it. I didn't see anyone with my idea...hehe..not yet. Someone's probably already read this and is dev'ing it now! :)
I like the idea so much I almost can't stop thinking about it! You would have tools like Photoshop. A knife, a hand, a smudge......I can just imagine it. Give me a couple million, I'll make it happen...lol
I know it isn't feasible now. I was just thinking how cool that would be. All of this new 3d tech maybe in 10 years? I just really liked the idea of opening up a program like Photoshop, but instead you get a clay piece to play with....I just like that idea.
I think you're envisioning a definite possibility, perhaps not now, but definitely somewhere soon in the future. I don't think technology is the barrier--it's more getting people comfortable working within these kinds of new paradigms.
