The Kinect Status Notifier, will pops up a notification in system tray whenever this changes in sensor status. This can be very useful for Kinect for windows SDK based application.
To understand the flow of the Kinect status and the scenarios on which it can occur in a simpler way, refer the diagram below. Once the device is plugged in and power is turned off it will goes to “Not Powered” state, similarly for unplugging the device from USB port will returns the “Disconnected” status. If you plugged it in back or turn the power on, first it will in “Initializing” state before turns into “Connected” state.

Microsoft User Group Hyderabad (MUGH ) invites you to monthly User Group Meet on 23rd Feb’13 . This monthly UG meet scheduled on coming Saturday (23rd Feb – from 9:00 A.M ) at Infotech Enterprises Ltd, Hyderabad.
I will be delivering a session on “Kinect for Windows SDK” and will talk about how we can build a gesture enabled and speech recognized application; this is what we called building Natural User Interface (NUI) application. I will also walk you through with different features of Kinect SDK such as capturing Infrared data Stream, Getting Sensor Accelerometer data, tracking human body joints and something around Face Tracking.

In this post I am going to talk about how to capture the Infrared stream from the Kinect sensor and control the IR emitter using Kinect for Window SDK. This feature is available with the Kinect for Windows SDK v1.6. The major components for a Kinect device consists of a depth sensor, color camera, IR Emitter, and a set of microphones with everything secured inside box. The box is attached to a small motor working as the base that enables the device to be tilted.

Most the people who were in the TechEd 2012 India would have witnessed the cool demo by me and Jebarson made on the opening Keynotes of the event. And now we would like to share how this solution was developed so that you can also build your own.
Before we could pitch in, let me give a little background on how we decided to build this on our garage. Developer Conference 2011 on Hyderabad was scheduled on October 2011 and myself and Jebarson were looking forward to show something cool on our own interested areas. Jebarson was looking out for something on Windows Azure and Windows Phone while myself was fiddling around Kinect. Ran out of ideas we both met together and thought of integrating everything and that is when we came up with the idea of building our own home security. We started building this application as early as September 2011. And by now, we have already revised the application more than 5 times due to newer SDK release and also due to the addition of newer components.
TechEd India 2012 – Presenting On "Windows Azure With Windows Phone, Windows 8 Metro And Kinect” March 13, 2012Posted by Abhijit Jana in .NET Community Events, TechEd.

I am very happy and excited to announce that this TechEd I will be presenting along with my friend Jebarson. We will be presenting a session which will showcase the integration onWindows Azure, Windows Phone, Windows 8 Metro and Kinect.
For the presentation we have developed a proto solution for Home Security. Well let me explain how we have put all these technologies into action. The Kinect device will serve as a watch dog at the home which is connected to the Azure. The device will be uploading patrol images to the Azure on regular intervals. Once there is a human intrusion detected, the Kinect will send a alert to the Azure and also will start streaming the live video to the Smooth Streaming Server hosted on Azure. Once the Azure, receives the alert, it will send a notification using Microsoft Push Notification Server (MPNS) to the subscribed Windows Phones and Windows 8 Metro apps where you can watch the video streamed live from the Kinect. Well, that’s not the end, we will also demonstrate on controlling Kinect from Windows Phone / Windows 8 Metro app using Azure App Fabric.
We will be discussing all the technologies involved and the architecture of the complete solution extensively along with a live demonstration in the TechEd.
