If you haven’t checked out programming Kinect for Windows yet, now is an absolute golden time to start checking it out. In the latest release of the SDK, they have included Kinect Fusion! (If you are not familiar with Kinect Fusion, read no more until you have checked out Kinect Fusion!)
And if that wasn’t enough, they now include a gesture recognition engine and have events for right/left hand open and close. These are pretty big features to get incorporated into the SDK. I certainly am excited.
To get the latest edition just go to http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/kinectforwindows/ and check it out! Already Kinecting? Shoot me some of your ideas and questions!
