Kinect to Gestures with Project Prague
Project Prague is an SDK (software development kit) that allows you to create NUI (natural user interface) experiences based on hand gesture input. We provide a .NET API (application programming interface) enabling you to easily design and implement your own customized hand gestures and integrate them into your applications.+
The building blocks of a gesture are hand poses and hand motions. Using simple constraints specified in an intuitive language, we allow you to define any hand pose and any hand motion you like. You can string together a sequence of hand poses and hand motions to specify a gesture. Once your gesture is defined and registered with our runtime, we will notify you whenever we detect that your user has performed the gesture with their hand. At this point you can run the desired logic to respond to the detected gesture.+
Using Project Prague, you will enable your users to use hand gestures to intuitively control music and videos, bookmark and like web content, send an emoji on IM (instant messaging) applications, interact with a digital assistant, create and run PowerPoint slideshows, manipulate three-dimensional objects, play games using their hands alone, and much more.+
