Kinect2Scratch gets a fresh new site and some updates too

Description

While we've highlighted this project in the past, there's been some significant updates to it, getting a new fresh website, new features and more. Shout-out to Stephen Howell's (@saorog) tweet for the heads up about it!

Kinect2Scratch

Program the Microsoft Kinect with Scratch.

Kinect2Scratch allows data from the Microsoft Kinect controller be sent to Scratch, the programming language for kids from the MIT Media Laboratory. 

This means that anyone can write programs with motion control, use gestures, make kinetic games and generally leap about having fun.

All you need is a Kinect with its own power supply (Kinects bundled with an XBox will need a separate cable). 

Note: Now with 3D & 2 Player mode!

    Hi,

    Thanks for mentioning Kinect2Scratch. I've updated the download page to cope with demand from your readers (I only have 100 downloads a month on Wufoo). Here is the new download link: http://scratch.saorog.com/blog.php/index.php/download-kinect2scratch/

    Enjoy.

    Regards,

    Stephen
