Microsoft Kinect Sensor and Its Effect

  title={Microsoft Kinect Sensor and Its Effect},
  author={Zhengyou Zhang},
  journal={IEEE Multim.},
Recent advances in 3D depth cameras such as Microsoft Kinect sensors ( have created many opportunities for multimedia computing. The Kinect sensor lets the computer directly sense the third dimension (depth) of the players and the environment. It also understands when users talk, knows who they are when they walk up to it, and can interpret their movements and translate them into a format that developers can use to build new experiences. While the Kinect sensor…
