Learn how to implement different Kinect features and more about tools, like Kinect Studio, that support your development experience.
Kinect for Windows SDK 2.0
Build desktop applications for Windows 10 or sell your Kinect v2 applications as Windows apps in the Windows Store to take advantage of unique Windows Runtime features and expand distribution of your app through the Windows Store.
With the ability to track as many as six people and 25 skeletal joints per person—including new joints for hand tips, thumbs, and shoulder center—and improved understanding of the soft connective tissue and body positioning, you get more anatomically correct positions for crisp interactions, more accurate avateering, and avatars that are more lifelike.
New and better scenarios in fitness, wellness, education and training, entertainment, gaming, movies, and communications.
Kinect Studio provides enhanced recording and playback, and Visual Gesture Builder lets developers build their own custom gestures that the system recognizes and uses to write code by using machine learning, increasing productivity and cost efficiency.
Develop on the go without the need to bring the Kinect sensor with you. Create custom gestures that decrease the time to prototype and test solutions.
