Last year, we featured Kinetic Space, a gesture recognition and mapping software that provided programmers with an all-around tool that allowed them to save and create gestures on the Kinect for their software use. According to the developer Matthias Wölfel,  the Kinetic Space software “observes and comprehends the user interaction by processing the skeleton of the user.”

Today, we’ve gotten word that a new version has been released which promises the following enhancements:

  • Gestures can be easily trained: the user can simply train the system by recording the movement/gesture to be detected without having to write a single line of code
  • Gestures are person independent: the system can be trained by one person and used by others
  • Gestures are orientation independent: the system can recognize gestures even if the trained and tested gesture does not have the same orientations
  • Gestures are speed independent: the system is able to recognize the gesture also if it is performed faster or slower compared to the training and is able to provide this information
  • Gestures can be adjusted: the gesture configuration can be fully controlled by a graphical interface
  • Gestures can be analyzed: the current input data can be compared with a particular gesture; feedback of the similarity between the gestures is given for every body part
