Halo 4’s Forge/Map editor could completely change the way we forge with the use of Kinect. Kinect brings us many opportunities using the motion, voice and camera features.
Imagine taking blocks and using your hands to move the blocks around to create the most acurate possible construction of objects. While using a controller to navigate around the map, you could use Kinect to pull, spin, and twist objects to immense accuracy.
Another idea is voice commands. Using voice commands to switch between objects could make forging a much faster process.
A third idea would be to use the camera that Kinect has. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWHgO3vXFhM This video shows “Kinect Build a Buddy” (0:31), which allows Kinect to scan an item and turn it into a living model. Well what if Halo 4 were to take an inanimate object and turn it into a possible forging structure? For instance, construct a lego model, scan it in Kinect, and save it to Halo 4. Now you could forge using Lego’s. This feature is by far the most controversial and could be abused. But it has the potential to completely change the way we forge.
