Microsoft Kinect

We have two kinects at the lab.

Kinect is a line of motion sensing input devices by Microsoft for Xbox 360 and Xbox One video game consoles and Windows PCs. Based around a webcam-style add-on peripheral, it enables users to control and interact with their console/computer without the need for a game controller, through a natural user interface using gestures and spoken commands.

 

Kinect software of interest:

TuioKinect (tuio x, y tracking for e.g. hands)

Synapse Kinect (full skeleton, works stand-alone, albeton live control via Max patches, o/c etc.)

Sensebloom OSCeleton + OpenNI (full skeleton for multiple persons, osc)

KinectAR (osc from osceleton / synapse to midi)

Delicode NImate (everything, crushproof(?) and commercial)
