Hands on with the Kinect V2 and Visual Gesture Builder

So we finally managed to get the latest version of the Microsoft Kinect and I'm very very impressed with what, admittedly little, I've seen from it. Within moments of opening up the Kinect Studio you see the skeleton frames overlaying the 3D point cloud image - something that took me hours of tutorials to do with the V1! Within 10 minutes I had recorded myself doing a few "hands up" gestures and trained the gesture builder to recognise these - I can't wait to start collecting some performance data and seeing what interesting stuff we can do with it!
