Last weekend I got speaking to Gareth Ritter at Willows High School in Wales. He has been a keen user of many of my Kinect Applications and like me has a passion for using the Kinect to engage students. One of my very first applications I had made for him was the Kinect Orchestra and although he was very pleased with it, we both agreed that there could be some adjustments to it.
We both agreed that students were finding it difficult to reach the top end of the screen. Some students were finding it difficult to hover in the far corners of the screen. Well more time has passed and I have learnt more about the SDK and I decided to do an update.
I released this update to Gareth early so that he could try it. He was had success with it and managed to get it running. In fact, you can see in the video below, that Gareth has been featured using technology in education on the BBC’s coverage of Michael Gove. The application is much easier to move and students don’t find themselves stretching to the edge of the screen any more.
