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.
