KinectToTouchDesigner sends the depth image captured by a kinect to TouchDesigner using shared memory.
First install OpenNI
Then download and install “SensorKinect-Win32-5.0.0.exe” from here (it’s in the bin directory)
Finally download KinectToTouchDesigner.zip
Unpack it, load the tox file, start KinectToTouchDesigner.exe and you should see a grayscale depth-image in the tileviewer. The actual output of the component holds the distance from the sensor in milimeters in a 16bit texture.
