Kinect Control

12 09 2011

After analyzing the scripts that were included in the Blockman sample, I was able to narrow down where the data was stored for each joint on the skeleton. I decided to focus on the head joint. This way the viewer can simply lean the direction they want to move within the physical space and see it happen in the virtual. After isolating the head joint data I used a series of print statements to see if the logic was correct.

Next, I coded the camera to update  according to the data being read in from the Kinect. The result works quite nicely. The further the viewer leans, the faster they accelerate in that direction. As of now the camera does not move along the Y-axis at all. The only thing that is missing now is a rotation functionality.
