Htun, Nyi Nyi (2013) Dance to Music to: Development of a Kinect-based musical tone player, and exploring possibility of it in application to motivate mobility of people. [Dissertation (University of Nottingham only)]
This report presents development of a Kinect-based application which can play different musical tones using inputs from body motions, and assessing its possibility to be used for encouraging mobility of people. The application is an interactive melody player system activated by human body motions that are detected by Kinect sensor. The application constantly captures six parts of a human body which are head, hip and both upper and lower limbs, allowing each part of them to play different notes independently over different MIDI channels. As a result, it turns the whole body into a combination of six musical instruments.
