    Friend of the Gallery and newly minted Microsoft Kinect MVP (Congrats!) Tango Chen is back with an extremely common request, using the Kinect to control a mouse (with source!)

    Kinect v2 Mouse Control w/ Source Code

    A mouse control application for Kinect v2, including a couple of options for various uses.


    I’m so glad that I’ve just become a Microsoft Kinect MVP since this July, so I think I need to do more things.

    One request asked most since the original Kinect came out is, “can I use my hand to control the mouse cursor?” There you can find a few applications for doing this with original Kinect on the web.

    These days, some people still asked me for this kind of application for Kinect v2. Then I strangely found there’s no such downloadable applications on the web. I gotta release a Kinect v2 version app. And here’s it, with source code!


    • Mouse Sensitivity
    • Pause-To-Click Time Required
      The time you hold your hand for as a click

    • Pause Movement Thresold
      How large the circle range you hold your hand inside for a little while would be a click

    • Cursor Smoothing
      The large it is, the smoother the cursor would move, more slowly as well.

    • Grip Gesture
      Grip to drag/click
    • Pause To Click
      Hold your hand and don’t move for a little while to click.
    • No clicks, move cursor only
