Kinect Augmented Reality – Part 3

Following on from Kinect Augmented Reality – Part 2 we’re now looking at drawing contours using our point cloud data. Achieving this is rather difficult, and after lots of researching an algorithm kept popping up – the Marching Squares Algorithm. Marching Squares is a algorithm for generating contour lines using a 2d array. I wanted […]

Due to the sheer amount of data coming from the Kinect, using WebSockets is the only viable option for us. There are a fair few examples of this that can be found, however all of […]
