We have worked on Intel Perceptual Computing Camera SDK and Microsoft Kinnect SDK, so we would try to support both devices to operate this app, along with all Touch and other sensors

We will be Developing the App in C# and XAML on front end, and in the middleware we might be using Intel Perceptual Computing SDK, Kinnect SDK, Direct X, Touch and Ambient Light Sensors, Microsoft Text To Speech Engine and Voice Commands, Microsoft PlayTo, and/or WiDi technology
