Kinect gesture logic > Duke Nukem

Hey guys,

I wrote a brief article/tutorial on simple gesture logic for Kinect in TD to fire a gun in duke nukem. A little demo video is also on there too.

Nice writeup. Just to clarify: the default for Slope CHOP is to measure velocity, not acceleration. Your article seems to use velocity, acceleration, and jerk synonymously, but those are different calculations. (Each is available in the “Type” parameter of the Slope CHOP though.)

Semantics aside, position and velocity math/logic have been working well in my current Kinect work too. I’ve also found it useful to calculate limb positions relative to the body.

Thanks a lot for that, good call. I’ll go and tidy that up to avoid spreading confusion.

Is this video still available? I see a page requesting a assword.
