This page collects videos of various people doing tests and experiments with OpenKinect software.

Florian Echtler (floemuc)

"Multi-touch" interactions Created with the libTISCH multitouch library:

Fun with a Kinect piano:


3D depth video capture measuring objects in 3D

koabi's work

Diarmuid Wrenne

Driving Quake Live with a kinect It uses openkinect, python bindings and on the linux to expose nearest point data. The imac runs Quake and a custom java program that calls the linux web server. It uses java.awt.Robot to generate mouse and key stroke events.

Sorry about the resolution but I'll try to upload a better one later.

Openframeworks, box2d, opencv and ofxkinect

This uses the depth map to determine the closest point to the kinect. It uses this point to draw a line that is part of the box2d world. This line can then be moved around by moving your hand or a magic wand (in my case a roll of string!!) so that other objects with in the 2d world can be manipulated. Works well.

Openframeworks, Box2d and opencv

Uses the blobs generated by opencv contours to generate a box2d object to manibulate other box2d objects. Works OK but filtering the blobs is quite error prone

Using to web enable a kinect on linux.

Awesome object recognition! and

Lightsaber tracking and rendering

Memo Akten

Drawing in 3D


Moving the motor with a GUI while showing video streams:

Plotting accelerometer to graph and calibration (Uses CL NUI (Will switch later))

Using kinect as a mouse (Uses CL NUI (Will switch later))

Removing the IR cut filter from your camera and examining the Kinect IR field, including high res image:

Emily Gobeille - Theo Watson

Digital puppetry with Kinect


Three Kinects (on three computers) pointing at same subject


Two Kinects facing same direction, experiments:[1] [2] [3]

Rolling shutter experiments: Setup:

The top image is a plain kinect, the other one has a rolling shuter in front of the laser projector. Both kinect operate at the same time.

Holding the kinect automatically on level: [4]

"AS3 first communication"

"AS3 second phase, motor & accelerometers"

"AS3 Very simple hand tracking"

Eric Gradman (egradman)

"Standard gravity" art project using libfreenect and python

Scott Byrns

Point Cloud in Java

Poor-mans Object Tracking in Java

Ben X Tan

Actually...this isn't using OpenKinect. I'm using CL NUI at the moment which is in C#, but I will switch over to libfreenect c++ version on Mac soon...

Jean-Marc Pelletier - nesa - cap10subtext

jit.freenect.grab: A Max/Jitter external to grab data from the Kinect.

Phillipp Robbel

Early experiments with a Microsoft Kinect depth camera on a mobile robot base

Jasper Brekelmans

Kinect 3D PointCloud Scanner

Thomas Hansen

Segmenting point cloud pixels based on depth ranges

Preston Holmes (ptone)

Control of DMX based lighting via Kinect

Peter Nash (pedronash)

Playing around with Processing and Java - seeing what's fun. My experience so far is mostly in smart calibration.

Willow Garage

Several projects including multiple kinect integration and teleoperation of robots. Read more at video:
