Methods available:

NativeKinect.init() - initialize the Kinect
NativeKinect.setVideoRGB() - output RGB video (default)
NativeKinect.setVideoIR() - output IR video
NativeKinect.start() - tell the Kinect to start streaming data to the library
NativeKinect.getVideo() - pull the latest video frame
NativeKinect.getDepthMap() - pull the latest depthMap frame
NativeKinect.getDepthMapRaw() - pull the latest depthMap raw data
NativeKinect.setLed(int) - change the Kinect LED colour (0-6)

Example:

import king.kinect.*;

PImage img, depth;
short[] rawDepth;

void setup()
{
	size(1280, 480);
	
	img = createImage(640,480,RGB);
	depth = createImage(640,480,RGB);
	
	NativeKinect.init();
	NativeKinect.setVideoIR(); // View the IR images, see also setVideoRGB()

	NativeKinect.start();
}

void draw()
{
	img.pixels = NativeKinect.getVideo();
	img.updatePixels();

	depth.pixels = NativeKinect.getDepthMap();
	depth.updatePixels();

	rawDepth = NativeKinect.getDepthMapRaw();
	println( rawDepth[0] );

	image(img,0,0,640,480);
	image(depth,640,0,640,480);
}

Build Requirements:

Prebuilt 32-bit libraries are included, so no external deps.

  • Xcode

Build Instructions:

Coming soon.

TODO:

  • More error checking
  • Implement motor control methods
  • Implement accelerometer methods
  • Remove OSX/XCode specific dependencies
