Opening your image options with the OpenCV2 and the Kinect for Windows SDK (and a little C++)


Today's project provides a great example of a kind we don't often highlight here, using OpenCV and the Kinect for Windows SDK.

Using OpenCV 2 with Kinect SDK 1.5

OpenCV always makes a great combination with the Kinect SDK. I’m currently working on a project where I need to combine the two. Optical Flow and Face Recognition are just two out of many powerful features that complement the Kinect SDK.

I though this bit of code might be useful for anybody who wants to use these two frameworks together.

I’m just posting the whole class (C++) here (with links to the SDKs). Please feel free to ask any questions in the comments.
