We had a different format this time, six show and tell sessions:

  • Andrew Cherry - A simple server tool kit - a look at a little server written from scratch in .NET (Hopefully! Work etc. permitting...) The source will be opened up soon on Github, for now follow @socketmachine - announcements etc. will always be there from now on. Code will be published under the xyncro org on Github (https://github.com/xyncro) but be aware that there is nothing currently there now - this is intentional.

  • Jay Kannan - Simple Kinect Demo. Using the Kinect to control .NET applications. the demo concentrated on a Game Environment using the XNA platform and 3D physics for creating and bouncing bubbles around the screen. a long way to go to make it usable. the Kinect is clearly the best Augmented reality / motion control platform of choice for Kiosk makers and for public user interaction. look at the links below for more information.
  • Kinect Hacks
  • PrimeSense OpenNI this is the official library from the CHipset guys that I'm using
