An Evening with PrimeSense -The Future of OpenNI & the Path to Commercialization

Think the Kinect is magical and revolutionary? You can thank PrimeSense ( http://www.primesense.com/ ) , the Israeli company Microsoft licensed the underlying hardware technology from to revolutionize gaming. Come meet the people behind the company behind the enabling technology of the fastest selling consumer electronic ever! 

The Kinect and Natural Interface applications have captured the public's imagination since the Kinect's debut 6 months ago - now join us in welcoming PrimeSense to share a peak into the 6 year history of the company behind it, their vision for a future of Natural Interface Applications with OpenNI ( http://openni.org/ ), how to get started with their gesture and skeletal recognition engine NITE, and answer important questions about the path to software and hardware commercialization with this technology through business development with PrimeSense. 

Don't miss this exclusive opportunity to get your questions answered in person by representatives from PrimeSense and get the first scoop into how the future of pervasive natural interface will play out beyond the Kinect.

    I really enjoyed this meeting. I came away with a much better understanding of OpenNI than I had going in.

    Very good the tech dude was very informative. I believe there was a little bit of healthy backlash after the initial presentation as many developers are security advocates, however some people were a little rude in how they debated their ideas.

    PrimeSense was very welcoming and genuinely wanted to hear the community's thoughts.

    Searching for their next BIG business model.
    Unsure how to attract and retain the creative horsepower needed for their mass-market agenda - the Living Room.
    Sketchy about protocols to incentivize and share rewards with developers.
    Must resolve: "Who is the customer?"
    Coy about spectrum of existing and up-coming functional capabilities.
