Azure Kinect Body Tracking Experiments

By standing in front of the camera you can translate these body joints to an avatar rigging in Unity. In this prototype, I wanted to experience what it would be like to walk around a space populated with avatars that were copying my movements. The results are fascinating and hilarious.
