Arduino and Kinect Projects: Design, Build, Blow Their Minds by Enrique Ramos Melgar,Ciriaco Castro Diez

By Enrique Ramos Melgar,Ciriaco Castro Diez

If you could have performed a few Arduino tinkering and puzzled the way you may perhaps include the Kinect—or the wrong way around—then this e-book is for you. The authors of Arduino and Kinect Projects will assist you to create 10 remarkable, artistic tasks, from basic to complicated. you will additionally tips on how to include Processing on your venture design—a language similar to the Arduino language.

the 10 initiatives are conscientiously designed to construct in your abilities at each step. beginning with the Arduino and Kinect identical of "Hello, World," the authors will take you thru a various diversity of initiatives that showcase the large variety of chances that open up whilst Kinect and Arduino are combined.

  • Gesture-based handheld remote control. keep watch over units and residential home equipment with hand gestures. 
  • Kinect-networked Puppet. Play with a actual puppet remotely utilizing your entire body. 
  • Mood Lamps. Build your personal set of responsive, gesture controllable LED lamps.
  • Drawing Robot. Control a drawing robotic utilizing a Kinect-based tangible table. 
  • Remote-controlled Vehicle. Use your physique gestures to control a shrewdpermanent automobile.
  • Biometric Station. Use the Kinect for biometric reputation and checking physique Mass Indexes. 
  • 3D Modeling Interface. the right way to use the Arduino LilyPad to construct a wearable 3D modelling interface. 
  • 360º Scanner. construct a turntable scanner and experiment any item 360º using just one Kinect. 
  • Delta Robot. Build and keep an eye on your own fast and exact parallel robot.  

What you’ll learn

  • Arduino and Kinect fundamentals
  • Interfacing Kinect and Arduino via Processing
  • Communicating: Serial and communication over networks 
  • Interacting with the actual global: Sensors and actuators
  • Volumetric Scanning
  • Step-by-step directions on a number of Arduino/Kinect tasks
