Re: [OpenKinect] Upcoming meetups: want to present for 5 minutes? Kinect Accelerator, Volumetric journal

My name is Greg Hallman. I am a doctoral student at Teachers College,  
Columbia University. I met Sean and Jonathan at the second meetup.

My colleague, Seokmin Kang, and I have been working on the Kinect  
since Feb of this year. We are trying to create educational games and  
simulations that involve the Kinect. We have hit a programming  
barrier. Would like to create games/simulations in Unity but don't  
know how to program in Unity. We've been pinned down to just keystroke  
presses and mouse movement (single cursor) in Flash, with AS3 server  
middleware or the FAAST middleware out of San Diego. I like Unity much  
better because it doesn't require the "muscle man" pose. You can sync  
yourself by just with most commercial over-the-counter  
Kinect games.

Lately I've learned to love the phrase "slow progress is better than  
no progress"

If anyone has Unity/Kinect resources to share we would appreciate it.


- Greg
