This is a sample page for Kinect content.

jit.freenect.grab is an external object that allows you to grab images and control Microsoft Kinect devices from within Cycling 74′s Max/MSP/Jitter. jit.freenect.grab makes use of the OpenKinect project’s libfreenect library. It is being developed by Jean-Marc Pelletier, Nenad Popov and with help from Andrew Roth.

jit.openni is a rich Max Jitter external which allows usage of sensors like the Microsoft Kinect and ASUS X-tion PRO in your patchers. It exposes almost all the functionality from sensors like the Kinect in an easy to use native Max Jitter external for Windows and Mac OSx computers.

The Synapse is the app for Mac and Windows that allows you to easily use your Kinect to control Ableton Live, Quartz Composer, Max/MSP/Jitter, and any other application that can receive OSC events. It sends joint positions and hit events via OSC, and also sends the depth image into Quartz Composer. In a way, this allows you to use your whole body as an instrument.
