Lesson 5–Change the angle of the Kinect using the Kinect SDK

programmingAfter my last couple of lessons went online, a few people contacted me and asked me about how you change the angle of the Kinect when you’re mounting it. A lot of people are different heights and if you have small children, you don’t want to break the Kinect trying to force the angle on it. To solve this problem I have made a sample file and a video tutorial to help you do this.

You will need to download the sample from here. The video will show you how to add a button, slider and a label in and it will show you how to control them easily using a very small piece of code. If you watch the video below you will be able to attempt it.

Make sure that you have the following installed:

  • Kinect SDK BETA 2
  • Visual Studio 2010 with C# or Visual Studio Express with C#
