Can you add support for handtracking?
Also, you can give a list of gestures supported (by the kinect controller) in your example.
It would be greatly helpful for newbies like me.

Thanks

Sorry for the delay. First of all, I want to thank you for your interest on PyOpenNI.

OK, I will add support for xn::HandGenerator soon.
And, about the gestures supported:

  1. You can get the list of gestures supported by your middleware through the property available_gestures of your GestureGenerator. See the commit for more info. I haven't tested this feature personally, so if you find bugs (unexpected results, crashes) please open an issue.
  2. Some gestures that are usually supported: Click, Wave and RaiseHand. I didn't include the last in the example because it appears repetitively.
  3. To make sure a certain gesture is supported, use GestureGenerator.is_gesture_available(...).

I will add that to the example, thanks.

I just saw you forked PyOpenNI. Are you planning to add that feature yourself? If so please tell me,
so we can avoid duplicated versions. Thanks! :-D

Hi Xavier,

Thanks for replying. I forked it with the intention of adding this
feature myself. But that is going to take me longer to read and
understand the OpenNI framework as I have just started to delve into
this starting last week.

I would be able to add and contribute to future versions but not currently.

Cheers,

Venky

Great! I'm here for any help.
A good place to start is the programmer's guide, which explains the concepts of OpenNI
and some small examples made with C++.

Cheers,
Xavier Mendez
