Kinect Tech: Skeletal Mapping, Gestures and Accuracy

The Kinect has really fired people’s imaginations and there’s some great work happening right now – I can’t wait until I become a part of it =D

1.) The OpenNI library working with the Kinect to perform skeletal mapping:

2.) Using gestures and voice commands to navigate medical imagery:

3.) Apparently Microsoft are working on modifying the Kinect to quadruple its 3D sensing (structured light camera) accuracy from 320×200 to 640×480, at which point it will be able to detect fingers and other small features: ms-quadrupling-kinect-accuracy [eurogamer].
