Charlottesville .NET User Group: Kinect for Windows - Practical Uses and Integrating Mixed Technologies
Thursday, November 17, 2011 6:00 PM, Charlottesville, VA
View Charlottesville .NET User Group: Kinect for Windows - Practical Uses and Integrating Mixed Technologies on Bing Maps Agenda:
6:00 - 6:15: Socializing
6:15 - 7:40: Presentation
7:40 - 8:00: Informal discussion, socializing
Abstract:
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably seen some of the very cool demos of apps folks have written using the Kinect sensor. From demos that let you play the role of an Ogre on-screen, to controlling the universe with your hands, there’s plenty of stuff that’s eye-poppingly cool. But there are fewer demos out there that show practical uses for this technology.
In this presentation, Microsoft Developer Evangelist G. Andrew Duthie will show you how he leveraged the Kinect for Windows SDK beta to deliver a cool and useful session sorter for the inaugural Mid Atlantic Developer Expo. You’ll see how Kinect supports both gestures and voice recognition, as well as how you can leverage existing web functionality within the context of a Kinect-enabled application. You’ll still get some eye candy as well, but hopefully you’ll also get some ideas for how you might use Kinect in a more practical setting as well.
There is no charge for this event and everyone is invited. Food and beverages will be provided.
This meeting will be held in the McIntire School of Commerce:
