Kinect Interactions A combination of new controls makes it easier for users to interact through natural computing technology. These include “push” to select virtual objects, “grip” to pan and scroll, recognition of up to four hands simultaneously, and updated Human Interface Guidelines.
Intrael is a server that provides an HTTP interface for the MS kinect. It processes the depth stream coming from the device and thresholds it based on fixed depth ranges or a reference background frame. It then measures several properties for the blobs it finds and provides them to network clients wrapped as JSON arrays.
Update, 10 February: Sorry for some serious reliability issues over the last few days. The streaming server is now hosted in-house at CASA, which should be a lot more robust. At CASA we’ve been looking at using a Kinect or three in our forthcoming ANALOGIES (Analogues of Cities) conference + exhibition.
