Bodies in the Browser
Session Leaders: Shawn Van Every
Created By: Shawn Van Every
In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn how to access to data from the Microsoft Kinect 2 Game Controller with Kinectron in a browser and share the data over the internet.. The Kinect/Kinectron has a slew of interesting capabilities that we'll try out such as:
Skeleton tracking which allows users to do things like live puppeteer 3D avatars or interact with a webpage using their body instead of a mouse
Depth images which allow software to determine how far a user is from the camera and can be used in combination with a regular RGB image key a user out from the background to do things like go on virtual tours.
