Kinect Quiz for Beta 2

About a month and a half ago, I made a Quiz to use with the Kinect which would allow you to include 10 of your own questions. All you would need to do is edit the text file which goes with it and then once you had included all of the text, you can run the code.

I had been playing around with the new version of the SDK and had noticed some runtime errors which made me start playing around with it. After the changes were made I had a few more ideas. photo

  1. If you had the Kinect mounted, you might want to change the angle of it.
  2. What if the students could be a celebrity when answering questions.
  3. What if you could store the scores so that you could monitor progress of the students.

After playing around with code, I found out how easy it was to save a students score to a text file. I also realised how I could change the angle of the Kinect device. I have recently uploaded a new video to YouTube so that you can see the changes and It also explains what files you can change to customise it. i.e – change the pictures of head1, head2 and head3 to your favourite celebrities.

At the request of many of my friends, I am now organising my applications into their own separate folders so that you can find them easier.
