The artists, developers and technology enthusiast who belong to the Kinect Community have presented and share their Kinect programs not only within the community, but also to the rest of the world. In honor of the community as well as the Kinect device, Kinecthacks.com has currently compiled its TOP 10 BEST KINECT HACKS. The team has gone through a lot of content it has featured in order to create this list of the best and most brilliant Kinect programs.

Kinect for Windows Quickstart Series 7 minutes, 55 seconds 13 minutes, 36 seconds 14 minutes, 42 seconds 19 minutes, 2 seconds 15 minutes, 49 seconds 14 minutes, 51 seconds Kinect SDK for Windows – demos - If broken it is, fix it you should Lately I have been working quite a bit with the Kinect SDK for Windows, which you can install and use on your computer from our research department Geting started The only thing you need to get started is a computer running Windows, a Kinect device (must be the one with a power chord, but you can buy the power chord separately very cheep at most stores where they sell Kinect), and the Kinect SDK. Once you have everything installed I suggest you go to Channel9 and watch the QuickStarts to familiarize yourself with the basics and finally move over to the Channel9 Kinect blog to get inspiration and look at all the cool projects people are making. This series In this series I will post a number of different controls, extensions and demo apps that I have created. 1. Enjoy, Tess
New TouchDesigner Goes Gold, with Free Sharing, Ableton Live Sync, More From top: TouchDesigner powering the Plastikman show, Steve Mason’s Chapichapo. If you’ve been watching big-league visuals lately, things that made your eyeballs roll out into the crowd, odds are TouchDesigner might have been some of the software in use. The tool, established in years of use but perhaps little known outside a few select circles, has been making waves lately in some very nice shows. Even its interface is dazzling (and, indeed, figures directly in shows by the likes of Berlin label Raster Noton), flying through endlessly-zoomable graphical patching interfaces. One obstacle has stood in TouchDesigner’s way: accessibility. That Hollywood-sexy interface might leave average musicians and visualists wondering how this would work for them. The uninterestingly-named TouchDesigner 077 Gold represents lots of iterative progress on this tool. As new to this edition is an integrated mapping tool, for three-dimensional projection mapping. Here’s what’s new.

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 raw depth images coming from the Kinect sensor are not rectified. Accuracy of the Kinect sensor The accuracy of a calibrated Kinect sensor turns out to be very high. The accuracy of the Kinect is greatly affected by the intrinsic and extrinsic calibration of the Kinect cameras.
