Kinect体感互动开发学习资源

下面我列举一些供体感互动开发者学习的资源网站: yangecnu的博客 Kinect 1代,很详细,即便要学Kinect v2,也可以从1代的教程受益不少。 Kinect 2 Hands On Labs (英文) Kinect二代的上手开发教程。 Vangos Pterneas的博客 (英文) 很感激Vangos Pterneas!以前买Xbox 360 + Kinect一代,就是想尝试能不能自己开发,不能就当游戏机玩了。 结果网上搜到寥寥无几的开发资料,其中就是他的文章,是他公布的示例代码把我带入体感开发这个领域。 小明编程 不止Kinect的学习资源/新闻,也包括Leap Motion,Myo等相关体感信息。 YuYuYouEr工作室 Kinect v1/v2的Unity插件哪家强?绝对YuYuYouEr! YuYuYouEr Kinect SDK Wrapper v2.0插件可切换Kinect 1/2代使用,无需更换代码,免费! 通过其插件写的Unity程序,打开时右下角有一弹窗,很快就消失。 暂时就列举这几个..如果大家有什么好的建议也可以评论,再添加上去。
