David Catuhe, who is writing Programming with the Kinect for Windows Software Development Kit for Microsoft Press (and which we’ll publish in September), has just released Kinect Toolbox 1.2 (1108K) via CodePlex. This is the sixth version of the toolkit David has released since July 2011. Here are more details from David’s blog.
And here are David’s release notes:
New ContextTracker class to help detect unwanted gestures
New EyeTracker class to detect if the user is currently looking at the sensor
Tools to use Kinect as a mouse controller:
New combined gesture detectors:
New PresenceControl to give visual feedbacks to users
Improved GestureViewer sample
New KinectUI sample
Oh my! Look at the cover closely... Very closely: "...Kinnect..." Do you see the problem?
Hi, Marco. Clearly this cover hasn't gone through proofreading yet; we'll fix it soon. Thanks!
