Say hello to my little friend
Tom Kerkhove

Last summer the second generation of Kinect for Windows was released but the big question is – “What has changed for developers and what are the new features?”

In this session we will take a look at the new Kinect for Windows sensor, compare it with the first generation and show you some concepts & existing projects. Next, you will discover how easily you can retrieve, visualise & use the sensor’s data in your application.

Level: 200/300
