I'm selling the source code + rights of a software which rivals Microsoft's Kinect...

Recommended Posts

Long story short: You've probably heard of MS Kinect, which lets you control some Xbox games with gestures. The problem:

  • It works on limited amount of games;
  • 97$.
  • Using Leap Motion and so needs to be controlled with weird gestures.

 

My software:

  • Should work on 99% of games+;
  • Control it with normal gesture: "human shooting gestures" means shooting, stopping means 'stop', walking means 'walk in the game' etc, etc.

 

If you need demo + more info, pls. PM or email: perte@abv.bg

 

Basically, I am planning to sell the technology to big companies, but if the process takes too slow...months and if they want me to make additional changes - I may decide to sell it for even $500 or less.

Who needs Kinect (like) software in times of VR?

 

Most people can't afford VR hardware. I suspect there will be a market for intermediate approaches like this for quite some time. (Interesting read: http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2016-09-23-vr-there-will-be-blood)

 

Still, if this person isn't willing to share demos of their tech publicly, this looks like snake oil.

You don't specify the currency.  It's a big world.

 

Leap Motion is commercial software requiring a paid commercial license.  Are you a relicenser or are you trying to sell an add-on to something that already provides what you're providing, but at an extra cost?

^ The videos are edited. The 2 cameras should be synchronized which means one can make it appear that the character is shooting BEFORE the person makes gun gesture...but the point wasn't to make fake made up videos of course hence the "delay".

 

Several more things: 

 

1. Yes, the www.bandicam.com watermark was forgotten...

2. The low fps is only bandicam/capturing issue not something related to the software making 2002 NFS run slow.

I meant $97 USD of course, not AUD nor CAD. 

 

No, I am trying to be standalone product - that's the goal, not some overpriced hardware.

Is this an ML based system? I.e. does it have to be trained with a dataset of gestures ahead of time to recognize? Or can it compute raw pose data?

 

I'd call it raw, not trained so it will fit of the so called "unsupervised learning". Also, for the facial recognition I'm using the amazing Accord framework, which is built over the equally amazing Aforge but NOT for the gestures. I'm using my own code/logic for the gestures. Accord/Aforge seemed to slow for this kind of thing...or at least I didn't now how to setup for that. I have some screenshots too that demonstrate the way it operates...
