Hack [ANYTHING] with Microsoft Kinect
    Monday March 12, 2012 11:00am - 12:00pm @ Hilton Austin Downtown (Salon H) (500 E 4th St, Austin, TX 78701)
    If you're reading about this panel, you're likely familiar with - or at least interested in - the Microsoft Kinect. The Kinect's RGB camera and "depth" cameras simplify computer vision problems that were previously very difficult -- like interpreting skeletal motion. How else can gesture and speech technology change the way people interact with each other, find information, or perhaps locate the best nearby sandwich? The answer: Kinect meets the Internet. Join representatives from Microsoft and Yelp for a discussion about designing user interfaces for Kinect; some of the challenges of the technology; and how to build experiences optimized for hands-free interaction. Additionally, see demos of hacks, and learn how you can incorporate Kinect into your everyday -- both professionally or personally!
