Kinecursor = Kinect + Cursor..
I’ve seen several Kinect projects about controlling the cursor.(I’ve found 4 posts[3 projects] of this on Channel9 Codin4Fun..)
And the same part of them is: using one hand to control the cursor and the other hand to perform mouse clicks.
I decided to make a better one. So I created Kinecursor, stands for Kinect + Cursor, which allows you to perform mouse left down/up(down+up=a click) by simply making a fist(It’s not exactly called a fist.. It’s like… a thumbs up..)
Some parts of this video looks like an old video I posted, Kinect Angry Birds Space..
But it’s totally different..
In the “Kinect Angry Birds Space” project, which is not open source, I can only put my hand in a particular area.. But with this one, I can move my hands free(anywhere the Kinect sensor can detect)..
Download the Demo:
Kinecursor v1.0 Demo.zip (2026)
How to use it:
Download -> Unzip it -> Run Kinecursor.exe
The hand gestures you should make:
For now it doesn’t move smoothly.. But I’ll improve it later…
