Hi, makers, we developed a simple program which can use Kinect for Windows to control uArm through Visual Studio.
There are three main functions that the program can do:
1, 3D coordinates Control
2, Play piano
and the videos below show final results of these functions:
The main method to control uArm through Kinect is by acquiring left-hand-coordinate and transferring this data to uArm to execute certain function.
To do these functions, make sure
1, you have hardware Microsoft Kinect 2.0 and uArm
2, you have Visual Studio 2013 (or 2015), Kinect SDK 2.0 installed in PC and UCP(uArm communication protocol) download in uArm through Arudino IDE
We made a fully explained tutorial on our Blog, you can follow these steps to generate your own applications or functions.

before playing music with uArm, remember you have calibrated uArm in the latest way, check this website below to calibrate uArm and use all new APIs .
