Sometimes, Kinect Just Wants To Make Things Look Pretty

Microsoft's Kinect is normally spoken of in terms of its practical applications. Let's take a break from that, and use its "thousand points of light" as the basis for a beautiful photographic exhibit.

Photographer Audrey Penven has put together a collection called "Dancing with Invisible Light", which drops a number of her subjects in the dark and then lights them up using Kinect's infrared scanners.

It's like a disco! Only, you don't have to wear stupid shoes.

You can see the full exhibition online here, or if you'd like to see it in person (and live in California), here's where you can see it in the flesh.
