The new Kinect for Azure device with its powerful set of sensors allows observing human joint positions at great fidelity. In this demo-driven session, developers and decision makers learn how Kinect can gain advanced understanding of human bodies for their applications and solutions. The content focuses on real-life scenarios of insights that can be obtained through the device and how to implement them. The presenter shares tips from his years of experience. This includes basic posture recognition, detecting specific situations such as falling, or calculating forces on joints when moving, to estimating energy expenditure during sports. Attendees can expect some fun with a speaker jumping in front of the sensor.

Do you know when there will be a C# body tracking SDK wrapper available for the Azure Kinect?

@Denys_P  the official wrapper will come relatively soon. I know that is not very specific. But the team is definitely working on it and I am optimistic. That is as much as I can share.

Several folks wrote their own wrappers that you can try, too, in the meantime.
