Freenect simple stream viewers

Simple stream viewer (GL) with VGA and depth streams (no player detection)

Freenect basic 3D mapping

This example maps the VGA stream onto a dynamically-constructed 3D mesh defined by depth points (GL). It isn’t designed to be 1:1 world-realistic, but instead to demonstrate how a virtual reconstruction of the physical world can be achieved. Also it’s very basic and does not attempt any type of interpolation.
W/S to zoom in/out and C to toggle colour. Click and drag model to rotate.
