Inserting yourself into the blocky world of Minecraft, via Microsoft's Kinect camera, has been taken to a new level. This impressive Kinect hack does more than just make statues, it now animates them. Here's cat versus laser pointer video proof.

Nathan Viniconis' ongoing project has been seen in stills before, but new video of his Kinect meets Minecraft work shows how far it's come over the past month. Making yourself (or your pet) into an explorable shell or Minecraft monument looks cleaner and more customizable than before.


If you've ever wanted to see a man juggle in Minecraft, watch Viniconis' latest video. Read more about the project at his site.
