More Kinect Mayhem


Today's project is another example of how Mayhem and the Kinect can be used together to do some interesting things...

In case you missed our first Mayhem post, Kinect to Mayhem.

What was Mayhem (and) again?

"An open source application with a near-zero learning curve. Mayhem provides a collection of triggers events and reactions, allowing non-programmers to use their computers to automate… anything! What sort of things? Chase your cat off the couch automatically. Receive a text message when your physical mail arrives. Advance to the next slide in your presentation when you wave your hand. Update your Facebook status when the weather changes. The possibilities are endless...."

Kinect Gestures for Mayhem

Kinect Gestures for Mayhem is a module created for Mayhem( This module implements two hand gestures detected by the Kinect sensor:

  • Swipe Left
  • Swipe Right

An ideal application of this module is to use the gestures to control Powerpoint presentations.
