This morning I discovered a great peice of software I had to blog about. For the past few weeks I have been trying to take data values out of the primesense/openni skeletal tracking example and use it in other applications like processing. I tried writing my own TCP XML socket but that did not go so good.

OSCeleton is availible on github at: It works on Mac Windows and Linux which makes it amazingly versatile. The only prerequisites to compiling and running this code is that you have the Nite/Primesense  drivers installed and running. For Mac all you have to do is run “make” and it will compile. You also need to run this app from the terminal using ./osceleton. Once the app is running the user detection and calibration works really well.

The author of this application also included a processing app that takes this OSC data and compiles it to a skeleton with points. To download the examples visit:

Another amazing piece of software that was just released called TUIOPad. This is a iOS compatible application that can be downloaded right from the iTunes App Store. It using the multitouch communication protocol called TUIO and sends multitouch data from an iPhone or iPad to any TUIO compatible program. There have been wrappers written for almost every language and for other devices such as the Kinect.

To download TUIOPad visit: iTunes App Store.
