KINECT with your Eclipse IDE

Session Type: 
Standard [25 minutes]

Schedule info


Do you ever feel fatigued when you’re developing? Do you find that pressing CRTL+ALT+SHIFT+H sometimes hurts? Is a keyboard and a mouse really the best way to control complex things like Eclipse?

In this talk we show how you might run your Eclipse environment in the future. We have connected the KINECT controller from Microsoft with Eclipse :-). This really does mean that you can use gestures and voice to control your IDE. We will perform a live demonstration and introduce an extensible framework that allows you to use KINECT - even with custom tools. The following clip demonstrates “crowd debugging” with KINECT at the Eclipse democamp in Munich.
