Kinect Keyboard

So I’ve been pretty much addicted to visual studio over the last couple of days but its mainly been because of the Kinect SDK. I have sat down with it and decided to make lots of resources. I have just managed to make something that might be useful in someway for a music teacher. It’s a Kinect Keyboard!

I’m not a music teacher but I figured that it might be useful in some way but the main thing is to get out bits of useful code to other teachers. With the programs I have made at present people should be able to manipulate the source code and come up with simple programs which do what they want. I have supplied the source code in my sky drive so that anyone has access to it.

I will be developing this keyboard in the future into something else. I’m thinking of adding voice recognition to it so that you can say the instrument you want. You could have a lesson maybe about woodwind instruments and you could try and get students to guess which instrument is playing…. download it for yourself and have a play around with it. It’s quite simple to follow.
