>> Body tracking depends on the hardware you have:
>> is kinect the best way? no. but its awesomely cheap and non intrusive.
>> Do you have 10k dollars to spend in a vicon (http://www.vicon.com/) motion
>> tracker? They kill kinect accuracy in an eye blink.
>> Is there cheaper than kinect? Oh yeah. webcams are there for you. Ps3eye
>> delivers 60 fps at an amazing cost, and if you want to spend more you have
>> pointgrey cameras (also 60fps or more) or less phillips has a camera that i
>> don't the model but gives an astonishing 90fps for 50 bucks. However camera
>> solutions will require some computer vision processing effort (well.. so
>> does kinect! even more), and you loose the depth information (Z) that kinect
>> can offer.
>> As always. it depends on a complex equation that involves your skill,
>> budget, desired application, needs (XYZ?), gestures or direct point mapping,
>> realtime or post?
>> have fun,
