Hacked Kinect used as a multi-touch interface


Hacked Kinect used as a multi-touch interface, Flomuc writes –

Here’s my proof-of-concept HD video of using a hacked Kinect camera for multitouch-like interaction. Written using libfreenect by marcan42 and libTISCH (http://tisch.sf.net/) by myself. I thought I’d get the mandatory picture-browsing stuff done so it’s out of the way and everybody can focus on more interesting things 🙂


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. That is awesome! Will hardware manufacturers ever learn? Probably not…

    Keep up the good work.

  2. The picture-browsing stuff, classic. This is the Hello World of Multitouch. Looks great.

  3. Glad to see that this device is getting some good uses all ready. I want to pick one up for my robot.

  4. Reminds me of the scene in Minority Report. I always liked that scene.

  5. Well, OK… just as long as it doesn’t come with a somewhat faulty “precrime” implementation… 😉
