How to get the speed and acceleration from position data coming from a Kinect ?

    Hi,
    Does anyone know how to derive the speed and acceleration from position data coming from a Webcam or Wii or Kinect ?
    I get x,y,z position date from the Kinect and I would like to get the speed and acceleration of my movements.
    Any ideas ?
    Thanks a lot !

      Well speed is position change over time and acceleration is speed change over time so that shouldn't be very hard to calculate, right?
      But then there's this nifty [mnm.delta] object in the FTM library that does it all for you: http://ftm.ircam.fr/index.php/Main_Page
