Kinect + Processing

#1 Post by jstenner »

The Kinect is pretty easy to connect to Processing using the SimpleOpenNI library:
http://code.google.com/p/simple-openni/

Download the file called SimpleOpenNI.XXX.zip from the above URL. Expand it and rename the folder "SimpleOpenNI" and place it in your sketchbook (wherever you've defined that in Processings Preferences) inside a folder called "libraries". So, for me, "/Users/jack/Documents/Processing/libraries" Now you can use SimpleOpenNI as you would any other library. You can also view examples by selecting File->Examples...and looking in Contributed Libraries->SimpleOpenNI. I have also uploaded a zip file of the various files to Public->Hardware->Kinect if that's easier for you.
