What to do with a Kinect
You can use a Kinect to just play games - but there is more fun and perhaps even profit to be had from putting it to other uses.
So what else can you do with a Kinect?
A device that measures the depth of every point in a scene may not seem to have much potential but this isn't the case. Inventive uses of a Kinect fall into a number of different categories.
- You can use it to track a human and then respond to movements and gestures as a free from user interface.
- You can use it to create something artistic by responding to depth or human movements.
- You can use it with robot as a navigation and device.
- You can use the depth map to create virtual and augmented reality applications.
- You can use it to make 3D measurements and model construction
And no doubt there are many more.
