Use Kinect for Windows v2 with MacOsX

kinect comparison


in the following video I show a Kinect v2 for Windows connected to a MacMini running Win8.1. A customized version of KinectV2OSC streams skeleton data to my networked MacBook. There a Vuo patch shows my hands position, and a blue square is triggered when hands distance is low.

The same VUO patch gets the same data from a Kinect v1 connected to the macbook, thanks to NiMate.

This way you can compare the two kinects: sounds that even with data coming from an external Windows, Kinect v2 data are anyway more reliable and with less latency.


Draw on film workshop

Not exactly something hi-tech, but this is the result of the workshop held by Vincenzo Gioanola on the direct draw on film technique, i took part to. The film is the result of the work of all participants.

A Vuo plugin for NiMate

A sort of plugin to track skeleton movement in Vuo using NiMate to get data from the Kinect.   References: Download patch
