Kinect Projector Toolkit [2013]

Kinect Projector Toolkit is a library for Processing and OpenFrameworks which calibrates a projector to a Kinect depth camera, aligning a projection to the physical space it’s lighting. Highlights from several installations:

The toolkit is free and open source. It contains an app for calibration, and a performance application for applying effects onto calibrated stages.

The Processing version also comes with a tutorial for calibrating.

Thanks to Le Thanh Theatre and Erarta Museum for providing space for initial research, to Antonio Rosciano and ZeroStation for organizing workshops, and to Jan Hrdlička, Daito Manabe, Elliot Woods, Kyle McDonald, and Christian Parsons for their previous work in the area.
