Kinect Hacks Developer Interviews Coming Soon

Part of our quest at Kinect@RIT is to help those interested in Kinect development get started - both technologically and mentally. In the coming months, we'll be featuring interviews with Kinect hacks developers to showcase the ideas behind the projects. Know of a developer who made something cool? Are you that developer? Post in our developer interview thread in the Support section of the forums ( Here ).

Multi-touch Tabletop Gaming

The Kinect™ Multi-touch gaming table project explores the feasibility of using the Kinect™ to enhance the experience of table top gaming over a long distance.  Unlike traditional software based implementations that offer a purely virtualized version of the game, the table is designed to accommodate the manipulation of both real and virtual objects.  The sensor technology allows manipulation of these objects in a natural way, not mapped to buttons or keyboard commands.  Combined with telepresence capabilities, the table can simulate a table top gaming environment akin to a traditional tablet
