Kinect2TIR 2.0 Beta Released

A beta version of Kinect2TIR 2.0 is now available for download.

Kinect2TIR is a standalone software application that enables real-time head pose tracking with TrackIR supported PC video games.

Utilizing the Kinect's infrared depth data, Kinect2TIR allows accurate tracking in low-light conditions with no headgear or additional equipment required.

This isn't particularly anything new (older video) and has been sitting on my hard drive for some months.

It is using the now-deprecated KinectSDK v1. (v2 avalable but not backward compatible)

Still, it may be useful for those who could not get the earlier OpenNI version working.

For some games with encrypted TrackIR compatibility, a small 3rd party utility called TrackIRFixer may be required.
