Update: check the 2.0 version! vimeo.com/34824490

A quick installation prototype Emily and I hooked up with the libfreenect Kinect drivers and ofxKinect. The system is doing skeleton tracking on the arm and determining where the shoulder, elbow, and wrist is, using it to control the movement and posture of the giant funky bird!

Speed project - made in a day using openFrameworks and libFreenect.

If you're interested in making projects with the Kinect and openFrameworks check out the addon as it progresses on the OF forums. openframeworks.cc/forum/viewtopic.php?p=24948#p24948

Also keep an eye on the libfreenect GitHub for latest updates to the driver - github.com/OpenKinect/libfreenect/
