Kinect for Windows v2 developer explores body imaging capabilities

Zubair Ahmed demonstrates the hand color frame received from the Kinect for Windows sensor.

Zubair Ahmed, a participant in the Kinect for Windows v2 developer preview program, put his new v2 Kinect for Windows sensor through its paces and shares his findings in two blog posts, writes the Kinect for Windows Team.

In his first post, Ahmed demonstrates how to use the body source data captured by the Kinect sensor to draw bones, hands and joints and overlay them on top of the color frame that comes from the sensor.

His second post continues his “deep dive” into the body tracking of the v2 Kinect for Windows sensor. He refines his methods to eliminate a hack he had employed in the original code, the team writes. “In addition, he explains how to merge two body-image color frames and use a single image control to render them.”

Ahmed is also a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional nominee. To read more, head over to the Kinect for Windows Blog.
