It is our immense pleasure to announce the beginning of a new partnership between Open Perception and Leica Geosystems , and a series of new code sprints: PCL- LGSCS ! We are looking for talented contributors that are willing to develop open source efficient compression mechanisms for organized and unorganized 3D point cloud data in two separate code sprint projects. In both cases, the ultimate goal is to achieve as much compression as possible, but we will require an analysis with respect to the de/compression speed that can be obtained.
Mit dem Erscheinen von Microsoft Kinect als Zubehör für die Spielekonsole Xbox 360 im November 2010 wurde erstmal ein kostengünstiger Infrarot-Tiefensensor für eine breite Nutzerschaft verfügbar und schuf somit die Möglichkeit zur Entwicklung von Anwendungen, die durch eine gestenbasierte Nutzerinteraktion ohne zusätzliche Eingabegeräte das Potential zur Revolution der Gestaltung der Human-Computerrec Interaction versprechen. Daher entstand in kurzer Zeit eine Community, die die Anbindung an einen PC zunächst mit selbstentwickelten Treibern, einige Wochen später dann mit Treibern und Software Development Kit ( SDK ) von dem ebenfalls an der Entwicklung von Kinect beteiligten Unternehmen Primesense ermöglichte und erste Anwendungen mit vielfältigen Anwendungsgebieten veröffentlichte.
Dance Central has quickly emerged as one of the best-received titles for Microsoft's Kinect . Not only is the game great, but the smaller details like the way the menu system works are also superior to the other current Kinect offerings. Since gesture-based controls are such a new frontier, the developers at Harmonix had a difficult time creating an intuitive control scheme for navigating menus. The solution? Creating lots of prototypes and simply seeing what worked.
I don’t know if you guys have tried it yet, but last night I started playing the demo of Dance Central (which came with Kinect Adventures) and was -immediately- impressed with the game, and I didn’t even start to dance yet… The Dance Central UI rocks! The only two games I had played before Dance Central on Kinect were Kinect Adventures and Your Shape Fitness Evolved, both which feature a menu in which you have to hold your hand over buttons for a second or two, after which it will be selected.

Kinect , the motion-controlled sensor for Xbox 360, contains some startling technology for a $150 consumer gadget. It's like when GPS navigators first became popular, bringing what was once highly sophisticated military technology to the masses, or when the iPhone made capacitive multitouch screens the new standard for mobile phones. As with any sufficiently advanced technology, the community wasn't going to settle for using Kinect strictly as it was intended.
Hackers have found unorthodox uses for Kinect ever since it launched last November, but most of them have been pretty silly or esoteric, like creating a virtual puppet show or 3D image of the objects in a room. But this hack by a young man who calls himself Mike (or Nitrogen online) is actually useful: he places a Kinect in the corner of his living room and wires it up to a home automation system that controls his lights. As he walks around the room, Kinect sees where is is and turns lights on and off accordingly.
motion control features have become immensely popular among different types of users. The success of motion based user control technology has led other companies to take the initiative to develop their own motion sensing systems. One such company is , which demonstrated their own version of a motion sensing system for the PC early this year called .
