In this video I discuss how to get started working with the Microsoft Kinect in Processing using the Open Kinect for Processing library. I look at the different versions of the kinect -- 1414, 1473, v1 vs v2, and discuss in basic terms how the kinect itself works. I discuss how the kinect works in the context of computer vision applications.
