Hopefully simple question - Keyboard input with kinect V2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I am a student and I am developing a VR installation for my degree show, the material will be generated in Unreal Engine, I want to be able to trigger animations and effects by the position of the user. 

    With that in mind I was wondering if it is possible/simple to program a keyboard input based on zones in a 3d space, ie. the user enters a "virtual box" in a room, say a 1 meter square box, 2 meters in front of and 1 meter to the left of the kinect for example, a keyboard input is entered and when the subject leaves that box another keyboard input is entered.

    I have the keyboard mapping completed in Unreal so I feel this would be the simplest way of using the sensor for triggering this mapping, obviously I'm open to correction on this and would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions.

    Many thanks
