By Jarrett Webb, James Ashley

Beginning Kinect Programming with the Microsoft Kinect SDK will get you up and working constructing Kinect purposes on your laptop utilizing Microsoft instruments and the respectable SDK. you may have a operating Kinect application through the tip of the 1st bankruptcy! the subsequent chapters will open up the secrets and techniques of 3-dimensional imaginative and prescient, skeleton monitoring, audio throughout the Kinect, and extra. Examples illustrate the techniques within the type of easy video games that react for your physique pursuits. the result's a enjoyable learn that is helping you examine one of many most popular applied sciences in the market today.

starting Kinect Programming with the Microsoft Kinect SDK additionally offers development blocks and ideas for mashing up the Kinect with different applied sciences to create paintings, interactive video games, 3D types and improved place of work automation. You'll study the elemental code easy to nearly all Kinect functions. You'll learn how to combine that code with different instruments and control information to create notable Kinect applications. Beginning Kinect Programming with the Microsoft Kinect SDK is your gateway into the intriguing global of 3-dimensional, real-time computing device interaction.

Sample text

These last three actions are unnecessary because we have the FileStream wrapped in the using statement, but we generally like to explicitly write this code to ensure that the file handle and other resources are released. Test it out! Run the application, strike a pose, and click the “Take Picture” button. Your snapshot should be sitting in the same directory in which the application is running. The location where the image is saved depends on the value of the filename variable, so you ultimately control where the file is saved.

IO namespace. The second section of this chapter details stream basics and demonstrates how to pull data from Kinect using the ColorImageStream. This stream creates pixel data, which allows an application to create a color image like a basic photo or video camera. We show how to manipulate the stream data in fun and interesting ways, and we explain how to save stream data to enhance your Kinect application’s user experience. The final section of this chapter compares and contrasts the two application architecture models (Event and Polling) available with Microsoft’s Kinect for Windows SDK.

The values of these properties depend on the ColorImageFormat specified when the stream is enabled. To complete the coverage of the ImageStream class, the class defines a property and method, not discussed up to now, named IsEnabled and Disable, respectively. The IsEnabled property is read-only. It returns true after the stream is enabled and false after a call to the Disable method. The Disable method deactivates the stream. Frame production ceases and, as a result, the ColorFrameReady event on the KinectSensor object stops firing.
