Yesterday I spent some time looking for how to use the kinect in our project. Since the profs told us that it may not be necessary to make the kinect “embedded” (we can use it through a computer or a smartphone), I think it will be a good idea to start on the computer because it seems much easier to implement and test. Last year Microsoft released a PC version of the Kinect with a SDK included. I’ll be looking deeper into this, as we decided in our reunion today. We divided the research tasks and we expect to figure out what hardwares to use in the next days. It will certainly be fun to work with the kinect but very demanding also.
