What can you do with a Kinect?

  1. What can you do with a Kinect? Matt Biddulph, Nokia
  2. Kinect hacking is the latest in a long line of re-purposed consumer electronics. These days it’s cheaper for companies to build devices by gluing together standard components than it is to create proprietary hardware. Their economies of scale give hackers access to existing hardware at new pricepoints.
  3. The Kinect’s RGB camera captures a normal view of a scene
  4. Its 3D infrared cameras capture a depth-map of the same scene - darker pixels are closer to the camera
  5. Rotate that depth-map in 3D and you can see how it creates all sorts of possibilities for understanding a scene.
  6. Software XBox software performs: depth mapping skeletal analysis gestures face recognition voice recognition with noise suppression All these features are built into the closed XBox SDKs used by game developers. These are NOT available to Kinect hackers.
  7. Works with Processing, Cinder, Open Frameworks etc Full framerate camera + depth map Microphone features not available yet Lacks the XBox software features... ... but works well with OpenCV for computer-vision image analysis But OpenKinect is creating drivers, integrations and libraries for high-level systems such as Processing to enable the software side of Kinect hacking.
  8. “Kinect is making nothing which wasn't already technically possible, possible.” http://memo.tv/kinect_why_it_matters
  9. “It is just making it accessible, not just in terms of price, but also in terms of simplicity and ease.” http://memo.tv/kinect_why_it_matters
