Installing the ofxOpenNI addon

The ofxOpenNI addon was originally developed by Matthew Gingold. The addon wraps the basic OpenNI capabilities, including the following:

  • Getting a depth image
  • Getting a color image if the web camera is included in your depth camera model
  • Tracking the hands (namely, the wrist position) for use in gesture applications
  • Tracking human bodies, getting their silhouettes and skeleton point positions
