Is there an application for Kinect v2 for Windows SDK that Muscles tracking ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    I know SDK 2.0 does not support Muscles tracking but in Xbox one case it does, i was wondering if the same Kinect for windows provide the same features like Xbox one does in future SDK.

    just making sure the hardware support such features.

  • The hardware in both windows and xbox versions of the Kinect v2 sensor are the same. The SDK is as well. There's only one minor difference that I know of and it's about remote controls with xbox.

    To prove my point, read this. Muscle tracking is a custom algorithm based on the SDK. So if you want muscles, you have to do them yourself.

    There's no plans for a future SDK that we know of. The only one is the Win10-UWP version that doesn't do much at the point but expose color and depth streams more easily(and generically) but anything else you have a lot of work to do to get.
