Kinect V1 and Processing

  • Well, after the totally awesome Werkstatt this summer, I finally get the chance to put some of what I learned to use, playing with the Kinect.  Unfortunately, I've hit a wall.  Are the tutorial pages now out of date?  After attempting to install on a windows machine (many, many problems there, including missing Spout files, and not being able to find SimpleOpenNI to import), I tried again on my 2014 Macbook, running Yosemite  I'm on Isadora 2.4.5b13, but that doesn't really matter, as I haven't made it past Processing.  I followed the tutorial to the letter, but I'm getting errors (see below).  I should note that I'm using the 1414 model, and while everything worked well in Berlin, I did buy a new power adapter for use here in the states, so maybe that's faulty?  When connected, the Kinect's green LED flashes.  Any thoughts?

    Here's the log:

  • @Fred ? Any ideas?

  • Not sure, but it is not finding the kinect, hardware I guess. Maybe you can find some other software to test
