Kinect UIRT Opensource

I just successfully uploaded my code to the github repository.

https://github.com/codetiger/Kinect-UIRT/tree/master/OpenFrameWork/apps/examples/KinectUIRT

The repository includes the openframework with limited addons required to just run the example I have written. The source also has the code to use it as Kinect Mouse. All you have to do is call a function and send the right hand location to the mouse function declared at the bottom.

Controlling TV and Set-top box with Kinect

I finally made it work. Detected skeleton using OpenNI and detected some gestures using my own code. Now I also connected a USB-UIRT (www.usbuirt.com) device to my Mac Mini in addition to the Kinect, to send signal to my TV and Set-top box to change channels and change volume. Checkout my video... Now I can change my channels and volume without using the remote control.

If you want to setup the same thing, you can contact me by email. I'll send you the code for both UIRT and kinect. :)
