TuioKinect, by Martin Kaltenbrunner: "A simple TUIO hand gesture tracker for Kinect"

More Kinect from Martin Kaltenbrunner:

Martin Kaltenbrunner's description of TuioKinect:
"TuioKinect tracks simple hand gestures using the Kinect controller and sends control data based on the TUIO protocol. This allows the rapid creation of gesture enabled applications with any platform or environment that supports TUIO​ You can download the application from:​p/​tuiokinect/​ Music: Jabon Jabon by El Club de los Astronautas (Institut Fatima)"

I've played around with Tuio and OpenFrameworks, but it has been a while.  I can't wait until I have time to dig into this with a Kinect. I think this has great potential for supporting learning and communication among students with special needs.
