Recently, Intel has released a Perceptual Computing SDK. This software kit uses a depth camera from Creative (similar to Kinect) and enables development of advanced applications which enrich user interaction. This kit provides many abilities, e.g. face and speech recognition, tracking, hand pose and gestures recognition.
In this project we will investigate the Perceptual Computing SDK from Intel and the depth camera from Creative and use them to create a tool for DJs. The tool will enable a user to control music at real-time using hand gestures and other perceptual means.
