I'm fairly new to program development, although I have some basic experience in Visual Basic 2010. I recently got an XBOX 360 with Kinect, and have seen the Kinect for Windows stuff which looks really cool. Anyway, I would like to try and make a basic program which recognizes my hand movement. For example:

I have a simple web browser. If I swipe my hand to the right, the web browser control will navigate forward. And vice versa. I have no idea, but the code could look something like this:

VB
If Kinect.Gesture.HandSwipeRight = Activated then
WebBrowser1.GoForward
End If


As I said, I'm quite new so please go into depth. Thanks! :)

When you get it to the point that if you flip it the bird, it automatically causes IE to block the current url, call me.

I stumbled across this on Channel9 MSDN. I usually see some great videos about Kinect.

Maybe something from their site can lead you in the proper direction. I hope this helps.

Looking through their archives I came across this as well. 2FAAST Kinect

Let me know how it goes! Happy coding! :)
