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.
Our dev bundle installs the latest versions of OpenNI, a general-purpose framework for obtaining data from 3D sensors, NITE, a skeleton-tracking and gesture-recognition library, and the SensorKinect driver for interfacing with the Microsoft Kinect. It then configures them all to play nicely with each other, no command-line wizardry required!
The good folks at Evoluce have released their own noncommercial NUI applications for use with Windows 7. The program sports easy to use and intuitive applications dealing exhibitions, education, digital signage and healthcare. The Evoluce SDK for Kinect is only available for Windows 7 but it comes with all the necessary drivers, an NUI API, documents and other resource materials. Evoluce uses the OpenNI framework with NITE. Developers can create their own noncommercial applications using C++ and C# using Visual Studio 10.
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.
