KINECTed Conference

The Kinected Conference project utilizes sound sensors and, you guessed it, the world’s fast selling consumer electronics device to implement some really cool features into videoconferencing.  Freezing Former Frames stop the current frame, “freezing” a chosen area so you can text or complete another task without offending the person on the other end. Talking to Focus recognizes the speaker and blurs out the rest when there are multiple people in frame. I might need that one for our video blog (jk Long!). Catch the vid for more on KC!
