"I have the Minority Report UI.."
Today's project is the start of doing what we all want to see done, putting a NUI (Natural User Interface) on Windows.
You know this is coming, that it's just a matter of time, that touch support for desktop/notebooks is just a stopgap until we get real NUI/gesture support. Do you really want to touch my notebook screen or monitor (and have everyone else touching it too)? Or really just use your hands, fingers and voice as the UI controller? That's the early promise of Kinect.
And the early promise of libraries like this...
KinectNUI is a Natural User Interface for Windows, built on the Kinect SDK. If you have a Kinect and a modern Windows PC, you should be able to get it to work.
