NSFW: The World’s First Kinect Porn

Spanish artist Alejandro Gomez-Arias is one great pioneer. No, he is not a scientist or an industrialist/inventor. Nevertheless, he and his girlfriend have ushered a new era in digital media and film. Ladies and gentlemen, we present to you, the world’s first Kinect Porn.

Using Kinect, which was originally developed for video games, he was able to shoot an explicit yet abstract short film titled Love Is All. His 4:30 long film was recently on display at a popup exhibition in Williamsburg, and features a brief strip tease and a variety of sexual positions between a young couple. However, unlike any other porn you might’ve already watched, this one is pixelated, with only hazes of flesh-colored dots arranged into skeletal polygons giving you the impression that something else is happening on the background. If you know what I mean.

The dots that make up the actors’ bodies are derived from Kinect’s infrared camera, which was originally designed for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 system to allow players to interact with their games by jumping around their living rooms, no controller needed.

Kinect uses a technique called structured light to judge where the player is. The machine projects a known geometric pattern in infrared light on to the area it’s scanning and detects how the pattern deforms when hitting objects in space, calculating depth and distance through a triangulation process in conjunction with a normal camera.
