Recognition from above or close mapping RRS feed

  • Question

  • I only are touching this subject because i not want the sensor for a full body use.

    I want use the pc at the normal range, if the sensor could be placed above our heads or could be used to mapping only de fingers at a close position it would be better to apps for screen and 3d use.


    Is possible?

  • Pow Ritarashi,

    We have seen lots of interest around the possibility of upper body and finger recognition by kinect, but this functionality is not available from Kinect for Windows SDK Beta. This is actually covered by question 4 in our FAQ ( If you look through forum posts, though, you will find some posts related to how to perform finger or other object recognition starting from raw depth stream, and some of these techniques might be helpful to you.

    I'm sorry for the limitation and thanks for your feedback.

    I'm here to help
