Kinect + Box2D

Past few days I've been trying to arrange a marriage between my Kinect Algorithms and Box2d and it finally came up very well. As they both didn't really love each other I had to forcefully arrange an Indian style of marriage between them. Box2d accepts only shapes and that too only basic shapes with less than 8 sides. And it is impossible to draw a human shape in that restrictions. So I had to bring up a basic shape filled object in the shape of a human and I had to do it live for every frame. The interaction looked really wonderful and people really enjoyed it.


  1. do you plan to release the code for this ?

  2. Hi! I have a question, which library has you used? SimpleOpenNI library or openkinect library from Daniel Shiffman, or other? I have an aplication with box2d and I want to use kinect, detecting like you. thank you very much!!

    I've coded all the components (BG removal, blob detection, object tracking) my self.
