Hope you've had a great summer and fall - we'll start meeting up again in a couple weeks and I'd like to have people show and tell what they've been working on. Please get in touch with me if you'd be available to show a couple slides, demo something, or just talk about what you are working on w/ Kinect and related technology. The first meetup back will consist of a handful of these presentations and a large amount of time allotted to socializing as we all catch up with each other.
You may have heard that Microsoft just announced a startup incubator program ( http://kinectaccelerator.com ) that will run in Seattle from May - March. I've opened up a message board thread to chat about it - and I'll be looking to put together a meetup dedicated to it in the near future where people from Microsoft and Techstars can tell us a bit more about it in person. Here's the board: http://www.meetup.com/volumetric/messages/boards/thread/17979102/
Lastly, I'm looking to put together a publication around Kinect, 3D cameras, 3D displays, and everything in between that can act as a forum for academic papers, documentation of art/ performances, interviews with people and organizations working in the field, and an accessible entry point for people to become acquainted with 'the scene' --- or rather, the many scenes all happening around these technologies. Anyone interested in writing / curating / editing such a thing? its called VOLUMETRIC.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon!
