Kinect multiple mouse emulator project is coming to alpha stage soon! RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I have been working on the kinect multipoint project for multiple mouse emulation with kinect to make a multiple mouse emulator. But i have finally started to get somewhere with the emulator. I wrote a dll that can emulate mouse devices using dsf(device simulation framework) but its still being tested and debugged for errors. If you want me to i can upload original emulator code which can be changed for any device but i only have it working for mouse devices right now.

    Heres what to except when it comes in final stages:

    1. Each person from a kinect gets recogized as mouse device up to 12 people max until we can do at least passive tracking on more then 2 kinects.

    2. Can be switched for right or left hander for each mouse device seperately (requires manual user settings in the main program).

    3. Number of people to be emulated can be typed manually.

    4. left click is supported but not right clicking.

     

    Anyone wanting to help here is the project page:

    http://kinectmultipoint.codeplex.com

     

    I will be posting the code for the Emulator dll project soon but if you become a project member i will make it available to all project members even sooner. I plan on making changes on it right now and dont wish to release the code to the general coder public yet because it has errors in it some people might not be able to understand at times.

  • The timeline for release for project members is next two-three days. The general public will receive the source code starting sometime next week but if feeling lucky i might release this sat or sunday.

    My emulator is for multiple devices of the same kind (6 of mouse or 6 of touch). Iam currently working on the final stages of testing kinect code and Iam in beta stage offically now. My code is made modular so you could easily replace if you wish with a c emulator library and driver if you wish for more compatiblity.
