Kinect tinker brings motion controls to Adobe Flash
Shaikh Izaj Ahmed
Blitz says it will releasing the source code for the project at its Labs site tomorrow at 8 a.m. Pacific. In the meantime, the group has put together a very detailed video of how it can be put together with Flash applications to create motion-controlled user interfaces
In the spirit of opening up Microsoft's Kinect gaming peripheral to more types of user control schemes, the Blitz marketing agency tomorrow is planning to release software that will let the Kinect work with Adobe's Flash, as well as other interface tools like Microsoft's own Silverlight.
Blitz's workaround for this was to go through a socket server to transmit Kinect's data stream to other applications. In terms of Flash, this turns three-dimensional movements into coordinates that can be read by Flash applications or games. In the example video (embedded below), you can see that turns doing something like moving your hand in a forward motion into clicking on an object. While demoing the new tool, Blitz software developer Yosef Flomin also mentions that because the processing is done outside of Flash, it won't cut into the computer's resources.
