I am pleased to announce that Cinder can now support all of your Kinect hacking needs. With the new Kinect CinderBlock, you can very easily obtain depth map and rgb image, and additionally control the Kinect motor. You can even change the LED color if you’d like. There is more information in the Cinder Forum including a link to download the CinderBlock from github.
I have been playing with the Kinect for a day now. It was incredibly easy to get started. You simply ask for a depthImage or colorImage from the Kinect object and it is returned as a texture. There are two samples with the Kinect CinderBlock. KinectBasic just retrieves these two images and draws them to the screen.
