Today we highlight a new Microsoft Virtual Academy Quick Start Challenge...
Want to work with the Kinect sensor v2? In this hands-on lab, learn how to use the Kinect sensor v2 in an openFramework application running on Windows 8. We use an openFramework version available on GitHub, in MSOpenTech repositories. Build on this knowledge to implement a C++ modern class that allows you use the Kinect v2 WinRT object. And find out how to transpose the sensor data (pixel, depth, and body) into openFrameworks graphic classes. Don't miss this informative Quick Start Challenge!
In this challenge, you will learn how to use the Kinect for Windows v2 sensor in an openFramework application running on Windows 8. We use an openFramework version available on GitHub, in MSOpenTech repositories. You also learn how to implement a C++ modern class that allows you use the Kinect v2 WinRT object and then how to transpose the sensor data (pixel, depth, Body) into openFrameworks graphic classes.
What You’ll Learn
· How to use the Kinect v2 sensor in a openFramework application on WinRT (Modern app)
· How to use C++ modern with the Kinect SDK
· How to display Video and Body frames from the sensor
Tools You’ll Use
· Kinect for Windows v2 sensor http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/kinectforwindows/default.aspx
· Latest SDK for Kinect installed from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/kinectforwindows/default.aspx
· openFramework installed from https://github.com/MSOpenTech/openFrameworks/tree/universal
This challenge includes the following exercises:
1. Create the initial OF project files
2. Displaying color frame from the v2 sensor
3. Accessing depth frame
4. Accessing body frame
5. Optional exercise: Track the handstate
