Thanks for the constructive criticism. This project is a code sample meant to be as absolutely simple as possible so that people can learn about how to code simple Kinect gesture recognition without having to wade through a complex codebase. I use this project
during various conference presentations and in my book,
Natural User Interfaces in .NET. I know it could be more functional by adding more code, using VSTO, etc., but that would undermine the purpose of it being a very very simple code sample. The approach seems to be valid as there have been over 10k downloads
since I posted the first version.
If you add PowerPoint support to your project or build a more functional Kinect interface for it, all the better and I'd love to try it out when you do.
Yes, I do know VSTO and have used it in many projects, including a Surface application that lets you view office documents. If you look at my company YouTube channel here
http://www.youtube.com/user/infostratcville/featured and scroll down to the 2nd to last video you can see an example of that. I do professional Kinect and NUI development so you can see
some of my other work at that link as well.
This wasn't my first project. My first Kinect project was libfreenect, the first open source drivers for Kinect, as founder of the
Thanks for asking me to help with your other projects, but unfortunately I already have too many other projects going on right now. Good luck! Sign language recognition is a difficult problem to solve.
