    Hi there,
    I really liked the video, it’s pretty cool.
    I was wondering if you could tell me what hardware and software you used to track the light? I’m doing a creative music project and and hoping to possibly use an Xbox 360 Kinect to track a light ball in water to do something sort of similar, and it would be great if you were able to help.
