Any Kinect + body interaction designers here?

Anyone here doing Kinect + creating music using your body?

I am thinking about it for my project. I guess its well explored already? Does a thesis project have to be totally unique?

Yeah I know the last question doesnt fit this forum but what the hell.

Nice. I love it. Open source patches?

wouldn’t be much help to anyone at this stage. i might consider cleaning things up and sharing at some point.

what are you looking for?

I got a Kinect today.
Installed Kinect drivers, openni, osceleton, max msp.
Are there any max patches that i would need to start binding for example left arm to a synth? How does it work?

I am really confused. Can you explain this to me.
My project is to do a fully functional body interactive gesture recognition instrument that triggers music and sounds. All I know is that there are different techniques to connect this.

One is libfreenect, and another is OpenNI? Whats the difference?
And Synapse?
And there are some more I guess?

Before I start with my project I need to know all ways of doing all this so I can evaluate the most optimal way for me before I start writing stuff in max msp/c++/java/whatever.

Thanks and sorry for all newbie questions.
