Here's an interesting project worth keeping an eye on. It was built with openFrameworks using the ofxKinect addon. The user appears to be able to hover his or her hand over a particular vector on the screen in order to start playing a pre-set sample of music. The user can then move to another area and have that other sample play in tandem with the original, stop either one by moving away, or initiate a new sample.
Oh how I love to post game changing kinect news articles. They're so fun and exciting. I always get that little rush when you write about something that hasn't been done and will serve a multitude of practical purposes. Skype is about to eat a sweet chunk of Fabric Engine dust with its Kinect integration. Seeing as How Microsoft now owns Skype, I'm sure they'll be keeping a watchful eye on this subject.
This is the perfect solution for those of you that just want to get up and running without all the headaches of downloading each framework and driver library individually. The idea is to create a package bundle that installs OpenNI, PrimeSense NITE and Avin2's SensorKinect so you can start using your Kinect on your PC with the click of a button.
