Microsoft Kinect Release Developers Night vision Windows Tom Cooper, 8 days ago Editor Informer Technologies, Inc. A new Kinect is on the way The second Kinect (v2) for Windows is coming on July 15th, the device will cost $199. This release will mark the start of a new era for Kinect devices where they won't be so tightly associated with gaming and Xbox. It will be featuring quite a few improvements on the previous version, including a higher fidelity sensor, a better skeletal tracking, a 1080p camera and better 3D capabilities, it will also require a power supply.
Developers can get their hands on the device a little earlier than the rest of us by pre-ordering it here. Build your own gaming controllers with this DIY kit. If you've ever wondered just what it would take to build your own motion controller, you're in luck.
The answer might usually be something like "a degree in programming and a bucket of cash," but right now there's an alternative that won't have you pulling your hair out or staring at mind-numbing walls of code. The VERVE is a simple plug-and-play system of sensors that allows you to take regular real-world objects and turn them into video game controllers, or really whatever else you'd like create. For example, use a motion sensor and a button to turn your bike into a driving simulator.
Grab a touch sensor and motion sensor to make an Angry Birds slingshot. Combine a button and force sensors to cobble together your own Minecraft axe. The possibilities go on and on, but the real fun of the VERVE is that programming the sensors to specific actions in your games is as simple as a couple clicks of your mouse.

Kinect. Kinect (codenamed in development as Project Natal) 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. The first-generation Kinect was first introduced in November 2010 in an attempt to broaden Xbox 360's audience beyond its typical gamer base. A version for Windows was released on February 1, 2012. Kinect competes with several motion controllers on other home consoles, such as Wii Remote Plus for Wii, PlayStation Move/PlayStation Eye for PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Camera for PlayStation 4. Technology Kinect sensor is a horizontal bar connected to a small base with a motorized pivot and is designed to be positioned lengthwise above or below the video display.

DaVinci Goes Touchless With XBox Kinect. The launch of Xbox Kinect has caused much excitement in the open source community.
In the last few weeks, developers have managed to tap into the hardware with impressive results. We’ve seen applications ranging from gesture-based experiences to 3D imaging. We’ve taken this exciting opportunity to port our popular DaVinci experience to the Kinect platform. Gestures are used to create objects and control the physics of the environment. Your hands appear in the interface which allows you to literally grab objects out of thin air and move them in the environment. To date, many of the experiments in gestural interface development have not taken into account the hands. Gesture-based interaction is great when touch isn’t practical. Coding4Fun.

Microsoft Kinect for Xbox 360 - Xbox: Project Natal Blog. Puppet Parade by Emily Gobeille and Theo Watson of @design_io #openframeworks. Puppet Parade is an interactive installation by Emily Gobeille and Theo Watson of Design I/O that allows children to use their arms to puppeteer larger than life creatures projected on the wall in front of them.
This dual interactive setup allows children to perform alongside the puppets, blurring the line between the ‘audience’ and the puppeteers and creating an endlessly playful dialogue between the children in the space and the children puppeteering the creatures. The setup consists of a stage where two puppeteers can control puppets displayed on a large interactive screen. The audience can stand in front of the screen and interact with the puppets directly, making food for them to eat which transforms their appearance or just engaging in a fun dialogue with the puppet, the performer and themselves. Blender. The good folks at ZigFu have created a great way for people to set up the things they need in order to start using their Kinect right away.

NI mate Documentation (last update 22.1.2012) General Delicode NI mate is a program that uses OpenNI standard compliant devices such as the Microsoft Kinect, the ASUS Xtion and the PrimeSense Carmine to track body movement, converting this motion data into standard OSC or MIDI messages that can be received in any client program.
Installation On Windows If you have previously installed SensorKinect, OpenNI or NITE, it's strongly recommended that you either uninstall all of them or update them to the latest versions before installing Delicode NI mate. If you have any other device drivers (like the Kinect for Windows SDK) installed other than SensorKinect you must uninstall these before installing Delicode NI mate. On Windows Vista and Windows 7 it doesn't matter if your sensor device is connected or not during the install.
In order to use the non-OpenNI2 version of NI mate on Windows 8 please follow the instructions for Windows 8 below. Installation options: OpenNI - OpenNI > Home. OpenNI - OpenNI > Home. HOWTO: Kinect + OpenNI/NITE skeleton tracking and gesture recognition in gentoo. Thanks to the folks at PrimeSense libraries are now available for skeleton tracking and gesture recognition. UPDATE: Check here if you've gotten NITE working and want to try using the kinect as a Minority Report style mouse.UPDATE:I've added a description of how to track multiple hands under the Sample-PointViewer description.
Here's how I got things working in gentoo: (15)Repeat step 14 for Sample-Scene.xml and Sample-Tracking.xml(16)Open Sample-User.xml and replace the existing MapOutputMode line with the line below.

At last, after some setting up we got the Nite library accesible from openFrameworks on linux thanxs to the work of the independent community.
To make it work, we followed closely these instructions to install the OpenNI libs, Primesense's Sensor drivers, and the NITE library. We got some of the "InitFromXml failed: Can't create any node of the requested type! " error reported by other, but it was solved after rebooting, deleting the three folders (OpenNI, Sensors and NITE), and repeating everithing. We used as wrapper Alohas's "ofxONI_notYetAddon" with some changes. We also had to change the name of several "Status" variables to "theStatus" on the XnStatus.h file as follows: XN_C_API const XnChar* xnGetStatusString(const XnStatus theStatus); XN_C_API const XnChar* xnGetStatusName(const XnStatus theStatus); Using Kinect + OpenNI to Embody an Avatar in Second Life.

At the MxR Lab at the University of Southern California Institute for Creative Technologies we are developing methods of recognizing social gestures in order to explore the transference of emotion and gesture between a virtual world and the real world. OctoMap - 3D occupancy mapping. Openni_kinect/kinect_accuracy. This page discusses both the precision and the accuracy of the Kinect sensor. If you are not sure what the difference between precision and accuracy is, check out this Wikipedia page.
Precision of the Kinect sensor Because the Kinect is essentially a stereo camera, the expected error on its depth measurements is proportional to the distance squared. The experimental data shown in the graph below confirm the expected error model. Openni/Contests/ROS 3D/RGBD-6D-SLAM. Openni/Contests/ROS 3D/Minority Report Interface.
