The electronic band Neon Indian performed a groundbreaking show that integrated several Microsoft Kinect sensors.

The performance, done at the CMJ Music Marathon in New York City this month, involved the band using five Kinect sensors to capture the movement of band members on stage. The data captured by these five Kinect sensors was then translated into light and projected in the form of a really trippy and eye-catching light performance behind the band. Many members of the audience were unaware at the time that the lights behind the musicians were not completely random.

Neon Indian has gone down in history thanks to this groundbreaking performance. It will be interesting to see how musicians and other kinds of artists integrate Microsoft's Kinect motion-sensing technology into their live performances.
