Development stopped because seized production of Kinect V2.


Kinec-tics is a free program that gives the user the ability to connect to a Microsoft Kinect V2 for Windows, also known as the Xbox One Kinect on a computer and read sensor data from Kinect. The Kinect can detect and track the human body and can project an overlying stick-figure. The data from the stick-figure can be used for motion analysis and may be used as a tool for e.g. physiotherapists or trainers.

Kinec-tics is constantly under development but is already usable for analysis. The program doesn’t analyze movements but all of the data is given to the user for interpretation.


The program can be downloaded here and is self-explanatory.
