I like to explore different technologies that relate with computers and that’s why I own a Lego Mindstorms NXT . More recently I bought a Kinect to transform some ideas into real applications.
I’m currently looking for job in software development in the Toronto (Canada) area and it occurred to me that I could present my portfolio in a fun and entertaining way. So I decided to create my first Kinect application to be this interactive portfolio. Although I have some years of experience in business applications, portals, intranets, etc., I decided to compile only my experience in game development and interactive 3d projects.
If you don’t own a Kinect you can watch the video below to see how it works. I encourage you to skip the video in case you want to try the application or you’ll ruin the experience.
The code uses the following technologies: C#, .NET, XNA and WPF. I also used two open source libraries to help with the gestures and the XNA integration with WPF.
Note: Please make sure you install the software requirements or you won’t be able to install the application.
- My parents for helping me out recording the video.
- Anabela Faria for the video editing.
- Paulo Silva for the animated silhoutte.
