Finally, a chance to re-enact our favorite scene from Big -- and also watch two guys recreate it! The latest Kinect Hack (http://www.joystiq.com/tag/kinect-hacks) is simply called Keyboard Anywhere, an apt title because that's pretty much what it does. You can size the keyboard based on your space -- the video past the break shows it being applied to several different surfaces, including a desk and the floor. Hit the jump to see it in action.

One word:

This is awesome. I didnt know you could use the Kinect camera with the PC. Can't wait to get home from work and play with it!
