As you know, Kinect has come to an end and the industry is transitioning to new depth sensors and new body-tracking SDKs.
I have committed myself and my company to develop new frameworks for the Orbbec and Intel cameras.
So, why am I writing this post?
During the past few days, our Vitruvius software tool has experienced a significant increase in paid and free downloads. I have contacted some of my customers to find out what their plans are. Turns out, a lot of people are still using Kinect to create motion applications for exhibition booths, events, or shows. Indeed, Kinect is still alive in this niche.
To make your life easier, I decided to provide some useful links to download the legacy Software Development Kits.
For your convenience, here is also a list of Kinect development tutorials and demos:
- Body tracking
- Color – Depth – Infrared
- Face tracking (part 1)
- Face tracking (part 2)
- Floor detection
- Jump detection
- Finger tracking
- Joint rotations
- Coordinate mapping
This is it 🙂
Bookmark this post, so you can easily find and download the legacy tools.
‘Til the next time, keep Kinecting!
PS – Next time, I’ll publish a body-tracking tutorial using the Orbbec Astra camera and the Nuitrack body-tracking framework.
