Out of Your Seat Comp Sci: Coding Using the Kinect

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We will demonstrate and look at code and coding for kinetic movement in the Computer Science classroom using the Microsoft Kinect, and a demonstration of student projects, as well as a brief review of some of the code behind them. We will look at interpreting skeletal data and also facial recognition. We’ll also look at voice recognition. We’ll take a look at some other kinetic movement instruments such as dancepad and/or LEAP motion. We've had some incredible projects over the years, and I'll share how we've done it in our high school class. The concept of using your entire body as user input allows for a different type of thinking from your students. This session will include members of the audience interacting with my projects. I am also hoping to generate audience discussion about this type of out-of-your-seat experience.
