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.

I am very happy and pleased to announce the availability of my book “Kinect for Windows SDK Programming Guide”. The purpose of this book is to explain how to develop applications using the Kinect for Windows SDK. If you are a beginner and looking to start developing applications using the Kinect for Windows SDK, and if you want to build motion-sensing , speech-recognizing applications with Kinect, this book is for you. This book uses C# and WPF in the examples, so you need to know the basics of C# and WPF. If you are a student with basic C# programming knowledge and having basic understanding of WPF and interested to learn about Kinect SDK, you can also read this book.
