If you have got performed a few Arduino tinkering and questioned the way you might contain the Kinect—or the wrong way around—then this publication is for you. The authors of Arduino and Kinect Projects will make it easier to create 10 awesome, artistic initiatives, from uncomplicated to complicated. you are going to additionally the right way to include Processing on your undertaking design—a language similar to the Arduino language.

the 10 tasks are conscientiously designed to construct in your abilities at each step. beginning with the Arduino and Kinect identical of "Hello, World," the authors will take you thru a various variety of tasks that showcase the large variety of probabilities that open up whilst Kinect and Arduino are combined.

  • Gesture-based handheld remote control. keep an eye on units and residential home equipment with hand gestures. 
  • Kinect-networked Puppet. Play with a actual puppet remotely utilizing your entire body. 
  • Mood Lamps. Build your individual set of responsive, gesture controllable LED lamps.
  • Drawing Robot. Control a drawing robotic utilizing a Kinect-based tangible table. 
  • Remote-controlled Vehicle. Use your physique gestures to control a shrewdpermanent car.
  • Biometric Station. Use the Kinect for biometric reputation and checking physique Mass Indexes. 
  • 3D Modeling Interface. how you can use the Arduino LilyPad to construct a wearable 3D modelling interface. 
  • 360º Scanner. construct a turntable scanner and experiment any item 360º using just one Kinect. 
  • Delta Robot. Build and keep watch over your own fast and actual parallel robot.  

What you’ll learn

  • Arduino and Kinect fundamentals
  • Interfacing Kinect and Arduino via Processing
  • Communicating: Serial and communication over networks 
  • Interacting with the actual global: Sensors and actuators
  • Volumetric Scanning
  • Step-by-step directions on various Arduino/Kinect initiatives

Who this e-book is for
