Sweatin' to the Web: Kinect like Control of your Browser
Sweatin' to the Web is presenter Ben Farrell's modern take on the fitness craze of the 80's. Instead of your TV, though, we'll examine a more updated platform...the web!
Using Kinect and Kinect-like devices, open source, cross platform libraries, and Ben's brand new Node.js plugin we'll bring skeletal tracking, motion control, and gestures to Node.js and the web browser.
Since he's designed it to be easy to pick up-we'll talk a tiny bit about the code, yes...but more importantly, Ben will give you a crash course into the world of NUI (natural user interaction) and the UX of it all (NUX???)
