Sam Welker takes a look at using the Xbox Kinect and NI-Mate to grab motion capture data and use that in Cinema 4D to drive animated objects. NI-Mate is
freely distributed real-time motion capture & sound control for kinect that is available for windows and os x.
Check out the tutorial for Creating Motion Capture for Cinema 4D using the Kinect here.

Also make sure to make cool stuff!
