Lesson 4–Using Kinect to change images

In my last lesson, I showed you how you can use the Kinect SDK to update images. I showed you how you can get the text box to change based on where the position of the joint was.

programmingIn this tutorial I am showing you how to include images into your application and I’m also showing you how you can get them to update instantly. This will be useful for some teachers who want to teach students about the basics of programming the Kinect but it will also teach you how to build a Kinect Applications. Feel free to use the link at the top which will take you to previous Kinect lessons which may help refresh you.

You will need to make sure you have the following:

  • Kinect SDK BETA 2
  • Visual Studio 2010 / Visual Studio Express 2010 – C#
  • A couple of images
  • Sample 4
Kinect Image Updater
