Is Kinect capable of picking up paranormal activity?

    And it's been interesting to hear about them. :)

    I really do wish that a device could be devised that would conclusively demonstrate what many would love to be certain about. :)

    Those are stock-standard techniques, Zac, but Kinect is novel and probably unique, this thread devoted to its discussion.

    I have seen every single video of you in forum Zac! Thank you for your contribution!
    I have seen your post and the link of cameras. Kinect also has a good IR camera. Also a good software of which is a build of applications with C++, C#, and Visual Basic. The features of software are mainly raw sensor streams and the skeletal tracking.
    Anyway is not proven that:
    The IR camera of Kinect has the capability to track a ghost and the software to translate the image into the skeleton image?

    In Kinect, the software was engineered specifically to interpret data and movement in context of the human form, with the skeletal tracking. It will try its best to fit whatever it interprets to be the relevant data it gets into that context, while disregarding the rest of the noise.
    The software could be mistaking noise as good data, thus trying to somehow shoehorn it into the aforementioned context of a human form- a skeleton appears mid air!

    The origin of this data may or may not be spiritual.

    Forgetting the skeletal processing and looking at the raw acquisition may be better, so you could be the one to try and interpret it yourself, to avoid the bias of the software.

    If the origin is spiritual, perhaps we could assume that it would behave in an intelligent way. Perhaps you could come up with a way to test this notion, or any other notions, to try and validate or falsify it yourself.
