Kinect for Windows - Building Software for Gesture & Voice Controlled User Interfaces

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

One of the coolest and most exciting things to come out of Microsoft Research in recent years is The Kinect.  Originally shipped for the XBOX the Kinect is also available for Windows.  And it even has a powerful and easy to use SDK and API for .NET.  Currently in Version 2.0 with a new device that is identical in capability to its XBOX One brother.  This new 2.0 device sees so well that it can tell you your pulse just by looking at your cheeks where a heartbeat is not even visibly by the human eye.  And it can do it from distance!  This hardware and software combo enables .NET application developers to build software that is driven by gesture and/or voice. 

This session is an intro session to building (Natural User Interface) NUI solutions that will get you over the learning curve and well on your way to building great software with gesture and audio based interfaces.

This session will also focus on the design of NUI applications which have to pay particular emphasis on usability and user experience.

This session was designed to show you real and futuristic application suites based in NUI whose services and structured storage are aggregated in the cloud and emphasize how they are architected built.   And with a focus on a custom “hello world” Windows store app you can have the source code to.  It will get you over the learning curve of getting started in building voice and gesture based user experiences.
