comment As a Junior Software Engineer should I say that something has been done wrong if I feel so?
In addition, I really hope you did not post from work.

Thanks for the excellent suggestions. Your lower resolution suggestion is exactly what I meant for downsampling.

I suppose that is self-evident now I think about it. Re framework, do you think you could give some examples of techniques used to improve efficiency in such solutions?

Your evaluaton of the kinect is probably accurate, but opposite directions I think is a mistake - that would be the scale gesture. Your stuff about xml and serialization are spot-on; I will now have to study ms silverlight more closely.

Examples include MIT sixthsense and the original developer of the minority report interface (whose name I forget atm). There is nothing about that system that is technically unfeasible today (ncis: la features a more realistic solution) but nobody seems to have any interest in doing it commercialy. I am assuming the cause is user intransigence, which IMO can be overcome with an interface that sufficiently accurately reproduces natural motions. In terms of my project, I think the best solution would be implementing several manipulation schemes and letting the user choose among them.

Re user expectations, while I definitely agree with you that they must be met, at the same time I feel like the technology offers and hints at a variety of possibilities that are as yet completely unexplored. Your minority report example, for instance, is completely unrelated to current consumer sota for touch/multitouch interaction. Only ms surface has anything approaching this, and a limited subset of that functionality has been passed to win7 mt. This to me is extremely surprising, because multiple academic projects have made great strides in creating a truly "intuitive" user experience.

Thanks so much, by the way, for helping me clarify the problem.

Additionally, it would be nice to develop some other way of handling input other than "point to the object you want to manipulate". I'm sure there are fun things to do with 2 cursors that nobody has thought of yet.
