Information to start project with Kinect for Windows v2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I would like to write an application that hand while be a mouse courser. So an application should work like Windows Service or just open application.

    I think about to start a WPF or Windows Store application and add above functionality with Kinect.

    What do you think is the best startup project to this kind of project ?

  • Kinect v2 is not supported as a service, see sticky: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/72cecf8b-ac64-47e2-b54b-ddbd1dc237c9/calling-kinect-sdk-apis-from-a-windows-service-is-not-possiblesupported?forum=kinectv2sdk

    There isn't a sample that can be used other than the Body-Basics sample. You would need to come up with a pointer strategy based on joint positions. The principles of which are discussed in this video: http://channel9.msdn.com/Series/Programming-Kinect-for-Windows-v2/07
