Posted:It would be unbelieveably difficult. Kinect uses an infra red camera to calculate depth. I dont think the resolution and frame rate (mostly due to the processing overheads) of this hardware is high enough for such a small, fact moving object (as poi) to be detected accurately.

Check out the stuff on the desk in this video:




That stuff is not moving at speed. I'm pretty convinced that it would not be possible to accurately capture and plot the necessary data.

Most objects have to have IR beams from the built in projector bounced off them to be detected.



The IR camera is also sensetive to things that emit IR radiation (i.e. warm/hot things) so there are potential ways round this but none that are particularly practical.

Posted:I could see 3 ball juggling working ok if the balls were big enough. a lot of moves work OK in 2D so the depth perception wouldn't be too bad.

Thinking though has anyone tried using aerotech globalls with the playstation Move? you could probably match the colour pretty well...


A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.

Posted:The thought occurs to me that one could probably just pick up the hand movements and model the poi on screen.

Although the question of why do that as opposed to just using poi and occurs.

Posted:the kinect can actually track toys pretty well, the 'Fitness Evolved' game models your body in a wire mesh on screen and it's pretty darned accurate, I picked up a pair of sock poi the first time I turned it on and was amazed at how well it did!! you can't go all out speed wise or it looks a bit sketchy but at a normal smooth spinning speed it's spot on!!! I really want someone to make a game now where it models your toys as weapons in the game world...

even chuck norris can't pin you down if your on fire

Posted:well if it has ir detector then would have to make ir poi but i have very limited technical knowledge so i have no idea how hard this would be
