The past few days I’ve been working on Kinect SDK 2D gesture recording and recognition using a Dynamic Time Warping technique designed by YouTube user ‘simboubou’.
This early demo shows how gestures can reliable be recorded and recognised using this simple harness application. The released version will feature the ability to define your own gestures and save your gestures to file. I’m extremely positive about the prospects for this framework. I think that with some wise thinking and some clever community input this could become a viable gesture recognition solution for the Kinect SDK.
