I know that Adafruit was a big supporter of the Microsoft Kinect when it first came out. I just wanted to share with you a piece of software for the Kinect that we have developed called Gesture Studio. It allows anyone to record, edit and recognize gestures using the Kinect and it is completely free for non commercial use. Using Gesture Studio Lite, users can then take these gestures and bind them to key presses for use with other applications. I know that Adafruit has been focusing on the Raspberry Pi and more electronics then the Kinect but I thought people might want to dig out their Kinect units and try this software out. Thanks for your time!
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.
