Today's project by Abhijit Jana covers an area that I've not seen get too much coverage, which I guess makes it a perfect post subject doesn't it? Now you all are in the loop too!

Get the IR Stream and control the IR Emitter – Kinect for Windows SDK

In this post I am going to talk about how to capture the Infrared stream from the Kinect sensor and control the IR emitter using Kinect for Window SDK. This feature is available with the Kinect for Windows SDK v1.6. The major components for a Kinect device consists of a depth sensor, color camera, IR Emitter, and a set of microphones with everything secured inside box. The box is attached to a small motor working as the base that enables the device to be tilted.
