Multiple Kinect App

In this Java source code example the video, depth, and skeleton streams from 2 Kinect sensors are opened and shown in a graphical user layout similar to the one used in KinectViewerApp. This application can be easily extended to handle more Kinect sensors. It is assumed that your computer has sufficient USB bandwidth to support more than one Kinect sensors.

System Requirements: 1) The latest Java update must be installed and enabled in your computer, 2) You need to have two Microsoft Kinect sensors (works with any type of Kinect, Kinect for XBOX, Kinect for Windows, Kinect 2, or new Kinect), 3) The Microsoft Kinect SDK (version 1.0 or higher) must be installed in your computer, 4) Your system must allow 2 simultaneous streams of kinect data (your USB bandwidth or the version of installed Microsoft Kinect SDK may restrict the number of available streams).

The source code consists of the following files:
  •, the main class of the stand-alone java application.
  •, the main class of the java applet version of this example.
  •, a class that reads the data from the Kinect sensor.
