Kinect for Windows 1.7, 1.8

KinectInteraction is a term referring to the set of features that allow Kinect-enabled applications to incorporate gesture-based interactivity. KinectInteraction is NOT a part of the stand-alone Kinect for Windows SDK 1.7, but is available through the associated Kinect for Windows Toolkit 1.7.

KinectInteraction provides the following high-level features:

  • Identification of up to 2 users and identification and tracking of their primary interaction hand.
  • Detection services for user's hand location and state.
  • Grip and grip release detection.
  • Press detection.
  • Information on the control targeted by the user.

The Toolkit contains both native and managed APIs and services for these features. The Toolkit also contains a set of C#/WPF-interaction-enabled controls exposing these features, which enable easy incorporation of KinectInteraction features into graphical applications.
