- libfreenect (library for accessing the Microsoft Kinect USB camera)
- OpenNI (Natural Interface library that interprets the kinect data)
- PyOpenNI (python bindings for OpenNI)
- pymol (molecular viewer with python scripting)
Make sure to use the unstable branch of OpenNI.
Make sure your kinect is working. Try running freenect-glview to see if the kinect can fully see you.
Start pymol, load a molecule of your choosing and set the view as you like.
Run the script inside pymol ( pymol> run pymolkinect.py ) and calibrate with the 'Psi' position. Which looks something like this:
| o | \|/ | / \ | |
When the calibration is done you can turn the molecule along the z and y axis by moving your hands.
Moving your hands towards/away from each other will zoom out or in.
- Clean exit
- More functions and switch between them
- Better integration with Pymol
