I am happy to announce that I finally finished the Orbbec camera support for the KinesicMouse. The KinesicMouse is an application that helps disabled people to access their computer hands-free using facial expressions and head movement. It detects more than 50 signals from the face which can be used to simulate mouse, keyboard and joystick input.
So I would appreciate it if you gave the KinesicMouse a quick try if you already own an Orbbec Astra model. I currently only own the "Orbbec Astra F" model and have no idea if the redistributed file also work with the Astra, Astra S and Astra Pro.
You can download the KinesicMouse Orbbec here.
While the guys at Orbbec are working on the registration you need to manually align the color and depth data. Please watch the tutorial video how to do this.
- Hit the "Reset" button if tracking is lost (red smiley)
- Does not work with massive facial hair
- Tracking may be problematic with Asian or African-American facial anatomy (I apologize )
