The winners of Willow Garage's 3D Kinect contest that we reported on a while back have been announced! The first prize was taken by a program that allows you to create your own touch-sensitive controls by simply drawing some buttons on a piece of paper seen by your Microsoft Kinect and then use those buttons for ... anything really. The video above shows how the buttons can be configured as a sound board. Other prizes were awarded for using the Kinect on quadrotors and for teleoperation. A real-time color 3D mapping tool and an automatic calibration tool were awarded prizes as the most useful programs. For more details, have a look at the 3D Kinect contest's results on the ROS blog.
