Kinect v2 Minecraft

Kinect v2 Minecraft

Be the Steve and interact with Minecraft stuff!



Body Interactions:

  • You have an ax and a block. At start, you have an ax on your right hand.
    To switch between an ax and a block, move your right hand behind your back and move back.
  • You don’t need to collect resources. To place a block, simply do a push-down with your right hand.
  • To break blocks, swipe your right hand with an ax.
  • Even when you break the blocks on bottom, the blocks above won’t fall down. To enable gravity to all the blocks you have now, do a jump.
  • Throw the ax like I did in the video!

Keyboard Control:

  • Hide yourself from the detectable range of Kinect sensor and Press G – G meaning “Ground”. This lets the program know your environment better. So when you have a chair in your room, the blocks may collide with it but not pass through it. However, this is optional, the program still works if you don’t do this.
  • Press R – Reload the application.
  • Press Esc – Exit the application.


Basically the PC that you are able to run any other Kinect v2 applications on(for example, Kinect v2 sample application in SDK Browser v2.0), can run this application.


  • A Kinect v2 sensor, which includes a power hub and USB cabling
  • Windows 8 or 8.1, Windows Embedded 8, or Windows 10
  • USB 3.0 controller
  • 64-bit (x64) processor
  • Physical dual-core 3.1 GHz (2 logical cores per physical) or faster processor
  • 4 GB of RAM
  • Graphics card that supports DirectX 11

Get It For Free

Yes, you can get it for free, but please allow me to do this. To get more subscribers on YouTube, I hope you can subscribe to my YouTube channel then send a private message(via YouTube, email or whatever) to let me know your email address so I can send you the files.

However, if you don’t have a YouTube account, or you are not interested in my YouTube channel. Just tell me you don’t have that or “I’m not interested in your channel but send me the files.” via email. I’ll send you the files, too.

    please can u help me understand my son has xbox360 and is getting a Kinect sensor for xmas is he able to do this on that


    • TangoChen says:

      Hi Louise. I’m sorry that this application is for Kinect v2.0 sensor on PC. And Kinect sensor for Xbox360 is an original one(v1 sensor) that the app isn’t compatible with. So the answer would be no.
      Wish all your families a merry Christmas!
