Ubuntu – Mouse/gesture control with kinect

gesturesmouse

I'm lazy and i know it… but I am looking for either a debian package or a set of terminal commands that will:

  • Download kinect drivers
  • enable me to control the mouse with Kinect

Is there any one out there that knows if this has been done or can do it?

Best Answer

Multi-touch

It’s powered by something called TISCH (Tangible Interactive Surfaces for Collaboration between Humans) which now has a PPA with support for Kinect baked in.

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:floe/libtisch
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install libtisch libtisch-dev libtisch-csharp libtisch-java libtisch-python
