Adding new gestures

Mar 22, 2011 at 9:58 AM

Hi all,

I'm currently working on a project where I not only want to implement the gesture to touch but also add new gestures to enhance the user experience.

1. Is this possible in the current framework?
2. If so, could anyone help me out with a sample of to add new gestures? Or give me somekind of startingpoint, I'm kinda stuck on at the moment.

Thanks in advance.

What type of new gestures are you thinking of?

I designed MotionFx so that it will be flexible enough to handle extra information that we can extract from the depth sensor without requiring a redesign. It's mostly just adding more data to the HandSession class.

I have a bunch of changes that are not yet complete that I'll post in the next week or two.

What I'm thinking of right now can be best described as Aircraft marshalling like poses/gestures. (link)
When a gesture or pose is recognized, fire an event so I can handle that in my application. I'll check out the HandSession class and see how far I will get with adding more data to it. 

If you have something that could help me out, please don't hesitate to contact me :)
