I managed to get the Kinect working on both my Mac and Windows now so thank you all for your aid.
However I have yet to work out a way to get the information I want from the Kinect into Matlab.
What I want is to be able to grab a set of x,y,z co-ordinates from the Kinect. At this point it doesn't matter for which body part. Hand tracker or skeleton model being the obvious options I have been trying to compile them in a way that allows a real time stream to an expanding variable...
However I am stumped and out of my depth. Any advice or help would be greatly apreshiated.
Hi all, I'm hoping you can help me.
I seem to have reached a problem that was addressed earlier by Joelle but fail to understand how he managed to overcome it.
I am running Matlab R2011b on a Mac OS X Lion.
I managed to get the Kinect drivers working, proven by being able to run the samples in the NITE and OpenNI folders, however when I try to run the compile_cpp_files code I get the following error.
/Applications/MATLAB_R2011b.app/bin/mex: line 305: gcc-4.2: command not found

For the OpenNIPath I set it to the location I extracted the OpenNI to, so all seems well there. Thus I'm wondering if this is to do with it being a 64bit Matlab or Mac or both. But Ideally I would just like to get the skeleton example working nicely.
