kinect + face tracking links from Makers Faire talk

I gave a talk at makers faire about kinect / face tracking, and I promised some member of the audience I’d post up the links. here’s a list of what I talked about / showed. (note I put this in a “code” tag because the forum auto inserts vimeo videos from the URL, and this post got a bit unwieldy! looks a bit strange but potentially easier to copy, etc)
