I’ve worked with Kinect v1 in the past in openFrameworks and have some experienceĀ with .NET. I don’t know Unity 3D. So when Kinect v2 came out, I decided to play with itĀ in Unity 3D. Most ofĀ theĀ time was spent googling and watching videos that are irrelevant and doesn’t quite get me to where I want. If this is you, here’s how to start from scratch and get you running as quickly as possible. Kinect is your input that capturesĀ some kind of data. Unity is a game development engine, which receivesĀ those data. You then have to write a code to process those…

I’ve been wanted to experiment with skeleton tracking with Microsoft Kinect in forever. Finally, that time has arrived. And, boy! There are many ways you can do this. I did a lot of research at the the beginning trying to understand how all the pieces fit together, which frameworks/SDK to use, etc. This post is more like a journal documenting my journey with Kinect. It is in no way didactic.Ā Since I’m learning about this myself, feel free to comment or suggest a better way to do things. Some what confused at first, I thought, I should start with a list…

EyeO Festival is a conference where artists, designers and codersĀ “Converge to Inspire,” not to mentionĀ my all time favorite. I’veĀ attended EyeO for the past 3 years. The amazing projects I’ve seen inspired me to follow my dream i.e. got together with friends and did our first public interactive installation with Kinect. Coming from a web/app development background, it felt like a shot in the dark. My talk, “First-Timer Interactive Installation Epic Fail Hail!”, was accepted as one of the finalists at Ignite EyeO 2014. I used the stage to tell a story of what it was like to be a first-timer.…

In 2006, I wanted to start an experiment attempting to answer the question, “Why we hangout with people we hangout with?”Ā UsingĀ GPS data in conjunction with an interactive map,Ā I’m hoping to illustrate when people’s path have crossed or nearly crossed. Ā Of course, that was pre-smartphone era. There were no abundant of GPS built-in devices to keep track of people. With limited budget, I have got to find another way. Then a satellite data fromĀ WhaleNet at Wheelock CollegeĀ emerged.Ā The result is WhaleNet project, where I (with the help of a friend, Andalib) created an interface that plots GIS data of when and where…
