Kinect Virtual Disco Deathmatch Game Using HTML5 CanvasPublished by admin on Mon, 05/12/2011 - 12:09pm
The title pretty much says it all folks. A sort of high tech "Simon Says" in the form of a dance off with the help of a Kinect sensor and a little HTML5 Know-how. I'm really impressed by the polish and responsiveness of this HTML5 Kinect Dance game. I'm a big fan of HTML5 and love what you're able to do with it - especially the canvas tag. There are a lot of great tutorials out there if you're interested in learning more about it. If you're a web developer, it's definitely something to think about.
The game was built using OpenNI with a Processing web socket server that continuously sent Kinect data to Chrome. The developers we're cool enough to share their work with us all so if you're interested in checking it out, you can download the code from https://github.com/sydlawrence/Kinect-Virtual-Disco-Deathmatch
