DepthCam - Stream Live Point Cloud Data in Chrome using HTML5

One particular Kinect Use Case for people who want to get involved using Kinect tech but just can't picture how they would actually use it, is to offer up its depth sensing capabilities as a webcam - or depthcam in this case.

That's exactly what George MacKerron was able to piece together with a short Python script, a simple node.js server and a web based client to receive the depth data. It's all done in HTML5 and uses WebGL to render the 3D graphics in the browser.

The other day I posted an article about a great little game developed by Paul & Syd. They built this easy to use and fun to play Dance competition game that matches up your skeletal positioning with data captured from the Kinect and then pumps it into a browser that supports HTML5 using Jens Alexander Ewald's WebSocketP5 library.

Kinect Virtual Disco Deathmatch Game Using HTML5 Canvas

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.
