The development phase of the head tracking feature has begun! The Kinect Real-Time Head Tracking Frameworks is the latest progression of the depth camera’s technology as it ventures further into completing body tracking. This video by David Sanz Kirbis showcases the next step of head-tracking and the promise it holds for developers and programmers of Kinect programs. In the video, the user’s image is detected by the Kinect and relayed by the computer. A Darth Vader mask is used to mask the head of the user. The mask reflects the user’s head orientation, tilting and moving to the indicated direction. With a real-time tracking and display for Kinect heads, the possibility of adding and completing the list of track-able body parts is ever growing. Captured in real-time, displayed in real-time and now, this technology will appear in our time.
