Kinect shooting gesture

im trying to identify some gestures using the kinect sensor,
right now i use air kinect wich is a Native Extension for use with adobe air

but im guessing someone has already made something similar using openframeworks so i would like
to know if there are any examples of gesture recognition to use them as a guide ?

basically i want to let the users use their hands as guns and when they extend the arm quickly i could detect the event as a shooting action , you can see my first try here :

thanks in advance :slight_smile:


just answering my question myself for reference :

Not a easy task :S

Check out this addon.

It will let you train sequences for classification and recognition of the sequences using HMM (hidden markov model).

I haven’t tried this out yet, but the README says you can train gestures using the addon.
