Overview

Summary

We have a Kinect, we have digital projectors, and we have computers that are set up to communicate with the Kinect. We have tons of C++ and Java coders, as well as Open Frameworks and Processing experience. Let's make some sick video games, digital art, etc. List of kinect hacking demos:

Project Status

Got the Kinect November 27th. Kinect is hooked up to a Ubuntu 10.10 Open Frameworks (Linux64). Still tossing around ideas for projects.

Current work is being done on the machine named Slim. Development is installed under the hive13 account in the ~/Devel folder.

To use rgb-demo the device has already been calibrated. Use:

./bin/rgbd-viewer --calibration kinect_calibration.yml

Basic configuration

We are using arturo's branch of ofxKinect. If you want to start over with a fresh copy:

git clone https://github.com/arturoc/ofxKinect.git
git clone https://github.com/memo/ofxKinect-demos.git

To check out a demo in openframeworks (which works!)

codeblocks /home/hive13/Devel/of_preRelease_v0062_linux64_FAT/apps/examples/ofxKinect/kinectExample.cbp

http://www.openframeworks.cc/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=5103&p=25600&hilit=arturo#p25600 - Guy having same problems as us, the resolution is to add addons/ofxKinect/libfreenect/tilt.c to the project

Project Needs

  • Project Ideas
  • Artists (No coding needed necessarily)
  • Coders (No artistic qualities needed necessarily)
  • To learn Cinder, a C++ creative coding API
  • More publicity (post flyers that linked below, talk to friends that might be interested, tweet, blog

Project Updates

Nov. 30th, 2010.

Open Frameworks is installed on the computer the kinect is attached to.

Dec 2nd, 2010.

Flyers posted at DAAP. Hopefully students that lack the proper equipment or technical know-how will come collaborate on some projects. Note: student memberships are only $13.37.
