Microsoft Kinect delivers amazing set of sensors in one affordable package. Originally created as advanced natural-gestures controller for gaming console XBOX 360, it quickly being adopted for PC by wast community of enthusiasts.

We also exploring possibilities of Kinect with our experiments, which include avatar body control, 3D scene scanning and controlling Kinect motor and accelerometers. In our demos we use Quest3D engine for which we created custom channels to communicate with Kinect via available interfaces. On this page you can see videos of some experiments.
