Event Details

This workshop will give an overview of programming and using the Microsoft XBox Kinect and its software development kit with a PC. We will learn how to access and use skeleton data, get 3D information from the Kinect, and create speech interfaces for the Kinect. You do not need an XBox console for this workshop, but having the actual Kinect plus it's USB adapter is necessary. The Kinect + adapter is commonly avaiable for under $150, at Amazon for example. The adapter is available separately from Microsoft. A PC laptop with Windows 7 is required for the programming. Code will be available in C# and Visual Basic versions; we'll do our best to accomodate C++ programs but may not have sample code ready for the demos. Visual Studio 2010 or its free version, Visual Studio Express, is required along with the Kinect SDK and its prerequisites, available at these links:
 
 
 
The Microsoft SDK is closed-source, licensed only for academic and non-commercial use. A follow-up workshop given 2-3 months after this one will cover using open source drivers and software to process 3D information from the Kinect and detect user gestures.
