Evoluce SDK for Windows 7 Released
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.
The Evoluce SDK includes high-quality technical documentation and several samples like the demo application “Motor Sport”. This sample shows how users can navigate through a menu and control images and videos by simple hand movements. Users can take control by waving the hand as long as they are within the range of the sensor that allows controller-free interaction up to a distance of 4.5 m.
Plans for a commercial version of the Evoluce SDK are slated to be released at a later date.
