Teaching Time with Kinect Time

Description

Today's project provides another great example of using the Kinect to teach time kids. I remember teaching my son time, using the position of my arms to help illustrate a given time. Now the Kinect, that becomes almost magical...

Kinect Time version 1 release

Kinect Time is my second Kinect educational game, one that has been suggested by many people who saw my Kinect Angles game. Please download it and test it for me. It is aimed at a younger age than Kinect Angles, probably for kids aged 6 to 10. It has both one player and two player modes. The point of the game is basically to set the hands on the clock to match the time digitally displayed, you do this by moving your arms; Kinect captures the motion and my game translates it to the hands on the clock face. Watch the video below to get the idea.

The game will work with the commercial Kinect for Windows SDK version 1.0.3.190 and with the latest Kinect SDK version 1.5. You will also require XNA version 4 runtime.
