Building a Kinect game with Python
- Audience level:
March 10th 1:35 p.m. – 2:15 p.m.
This talk will show you how to develop a game using Kinect from Python. I'll start w/ an introduction to the Kinect API including skeleton tracking, normal video, depth video, and audio APIs including speech recognition. I’ll then show how the Kinect APIs can be incorporated into a game using PyGame. After the talk you’ll be able to start developing your own Python based Kinect games!
