Kinect Keyboard Simulator & Kinect Sabre for Kinect For Windows SDK 1.0

Following the official release of Kinect for Windows SDK 1.0 and Kinect Toolbox, I’m pleased to share with you two (useful ?) samples I wrote:

Kinect Keyboard Simulator

This tool allows you to send keys to a specified application when gestures are detected. An obvious usage is to change slides on Powerpoint when you make a swipe to left or to right.


Kinect Sabre

Kinect Sabre is THE mandatory tool for your Kinect!! It creates a reality augmented vision of yourself with a LIGHT SABER in your left hand!!! (Warning: You need to install XNA Game Studio 4.0 to use Kinect Sabre)



Hope you like these tools Sourire

    Hi there, I'm new to the xna/c#/kinect environment, but i've been playing around with this code to get a feel for things. I was wondering where exactly the colors for the lightsabres are being computed. I'm tracing around the colortexture object. Basically, I'd like to be able to have red for player 1, green for player 2. next step after that would be to do collision detection between the two lightsabers, and after that, collision detection with the skeletons
