Hi, I think in my humble opinion is the worst kinekt ... interactivity
is not achieved suam reagent, the other day I saw the kids playing and
seemed automata, emotionless, worried - robotic, incredible.

I have consulted many times this same issue and there are several ways
to fix it, many libraries and patches, some simple, if you need to
capture each of soon to be good to use gesture processing and the
library connected via osc to pd. Also Gem or pididp or the same opencv
... take a look, if you can not help you solve it with some patch.

Best regards
