hello again!

if you want to use skeleton data and hand tracking (similar to 
OSCeleton) combined with rgb and depth streams from Kinect Sensor you 
can do this with the new pix_openni external. get it here:


binaries for osx in build folder.
you will need to install OpenNI, NITE and SensorKinect -> see README

initialization of openni and nodes needs some time and pd freezes - keep 
that in mind!
i hope it's stable, i haven't tested it excessively now.

currently it supports just 1 kinect sensor. i don't have access to two 
cameras in the near future so help would be appreciated.
