The Kinect has delivered a low cost sensor aimed at games playing without a physical controller. From the beginning people have been hacking the Kinect and using it for all sorts of weird and wonderful applications. This session will look at how the Kinect sensor can be used from Java applications using an open source API. We’ll also look at how the Kinect can be combined with other sensors like accelerometers, bend sensors and a compass to create a truly immersive application. The session will include plenty of exciting demos using JavaFX and JMonkeyEngine to drive the user interface.
