We've seen some fun and sometimes funky homebrewed uses of Kinect for the Xbox 360, thanks to the release of open source drivers for Microsoft's camera sensor, but how many of those apps support house cats? This one does.

Robert "Flight404" Hodgin has whipped up a Kinect demo that can bloat or emaciate the body in real time using the Xbox 360 accessory and open source library Cinder. While the gaming applications may be limited—turn yourself into a Boomer for Kinect 4 Dead, maybe?—the option to digitally fatten up one's body and that of one's cat looks more fun than, say, Fighters Uncaged.
