Hotspotizer allows users without computer programming skills to design, visualize, save and recall sets of custom full-body gestures, for use with the Microsoft Kinect. These gestures are mapped to system-wide keyboard commands which can be used to control any application.
Hotspotizer was my master’s research project at the
Koç University Design Lab. See mbaytas/ma-thesis for the TeX source files and PDF of the thesis.
Hotspotizer has been featured on Microsoft’s
Channel 9 Coding4Fun Kinect Projects blog.
This project was supported by the TÜBİTAK grant Specifications on a Design Education Methodology for Gestural Interface Design (#112E056, 2012-2014).
