K - News By: Elie Ain Malak Nour Assi Vasken Sarkis Georges Wakim
Background A modern newspaper kiosk that takes the simple notion of reading a newspaper into a higher and more interactive level. This Kinect based application is user friendly. It provides a new experience that is controlled by the users gestures. The gestures allow you to flip through pages, issues, star the current issue, get help, zoom in/out and scroll while zoomed.
Technology Used Kinect, the Xbox 360 controller is newly used for PC. It contains three sensors: Video, Depth and Audio. Kinect SDK was released by Microsoft for PC use. The combination between the Kinect Skeleton frame, the Depth frame, along with the SDK were the tools that facilitated the implementation of K- News presented as C# classes in Visual Studio.
Features K-News reads the body gestures of the user and translates it into software commands. These commands change the state of the display. To implement each of the 10 gestures, the position of the detected joints were recorded at different time intervals.
