The Microsoft Kinect camera has revolutionized computer vision by providing an affordable 3D camera (RGB+depth). The applications, initially driven by the game industry, are rapidly diversifying and include video surveillance, computer interfaces, robot vision and control, and education. We recently organized two demonstration competitions of gesture recognition with Kinect(TM) in the context of the ChaLearn gesture challenge ( http://gesture.chalearn.org/ ). Videos and live demonstrations of the winning entries will be shown, including a hand gesture recognizer for American Sign Language (ASL), games using hand and arm gestures, and a head position recognizer.
