This application, Kinect Paint, is a lot of fun to play around with. Although developments are still early, this undoubtedly has definite implications in elementary classrooms and is further evidence that the Kinect development community is growing strong.
As this Kinect community grows, the need for accessible downloads is warranted. This is provided a single executable file, making it easier for everyone to access. Most developments thus far have required you to compile source code, which can be tedious and perplexing. That being considered, make sure you read the instructions from the provider’s site in order to get this to work, because you will need to download the Kinect SDK first. If that sounds like too much legwork, I will tell you that it is beginning to become much easier to utilize these developments.
This application is available for download at paint.codeplex.com and is also listed in the Kinect Apps for Education directory at http://apps.kinecteducation.com. Using the Kinect and a PC, you can draw using coordinated hand movements.
Check out my video demonstration below. I may be super-nerd for filming myself like this; if I am, oh well. It’s far too cool not to share.
