Lesson 8–Drag and Drop with the Kinect SDK

programmingThis short lesson shows you how you can put your left hand above your head and then use your right hand to control where an image is positioned. It is a short video but should be easy to follow. It works on the concept that if your hand position on the Y Axis is greater then the head position on the X Axis, then carry out the canvas position of the image.

It’s a very short lesson to follow and there shouldn’t be any problems. The video is available in HD on YouTube so you will be able to see the text in a lot more detail and it shouldn’t be too difficult to read. Hope it helps!

You can download the sample files here and you can watch the video below to see if you can replicate the same.

      Hi There, It shouldn’t matter what sense you use. I use both with it and it works fine. Have you extracted all of the files? What errors are you getting – can you email them to ray_chambers@lodgepark.org.uk and I’ll see what I can do.
