We(Tony Lim and Alejandro Crawford) worked exclusively with kinect for the midterm. Our initial proposal was to create real-time 3D graphing system of each XYZ joint position and use the data to come up with a musical performance.

I chose the Right elbow & — as a reference — the right hand to demonstrate flexion & the overall extension of said joints. simple max code compressed here (just copy & paste): <pre><code> ...

Technologies that move us towards the world of Minority Report see the glove shrinking. Many Kinect hacks already...
