Hi everybody!

During the last months, there has been considerable hubbub about
Microsoft's Kinect 3D camera and the possibilities of it.

I think that it should be a great input device if you use a projector to
visualize molecules, as it would allow real 3D manipulation of the scene.
Did anybody already think about how one could use it to control VMD? Or
did anybody already start working on it? If so, I would be very
interested. Otherwise, I could possibly start with it...
