StartMenu / Candescent NUI

Today's post provides another view into using Kinect as a Natural User Interface (NUI) for Windows. It shows an example of using your hand and fingers to interact with a NUI version of the Windows Start Menu. The video shows it all and is pretty amazing.

StartMenu / Candescent NUI

To show the menu, present your open hand to the kinect at a distance of around 0.5 - 1 meters. To close the menu again, just close the hand. To start an application, stretch out one finger, move it over the icon (which gets highlighted), then close the hand quickly, so no finger is visible anymore.
