In the above video, YouTube user "Nao790" showcases the use of the Kinect Sensor to control a 3D model of virtual idol Hatsune Miku. (Microsoft sells the Kinect as a "controller-free" device for the Xbox 360 game console, but independent programmers have developed software that lets personal computers connect to the Kinect Sensor, too.) "Nao790" then uses the Vuzix iWear VR920, a head-mounted display, to see a virtual world through Miku's own eyes.
The programmer Yū Higuchi used a different program, the MikuMikuDance software he created himself, to make dancing videos using the Kinect Sensor.
