Creating Kinect-enabled applications with hand-cursor interaction.
More
The Kinect Interaction extension for the Kinect for Windows SDK allows you to create WPF (and other) applications that the user can interact with using a hand cursor that follows the movement of their hands much like a mouse cursor follows the movement of the mouse. This course will show how creating such an application can be as easy as creating with a mouse. You will also learn how to customize the look and feel of controls provided by Microsoft, and dig even deeper to completely control the interaction model or use Kinect Interaction outside of WPF.
