KinDriver GTA Kinect

With an application called KinDriver, you can play GTA: San Andreas on your PC using Microsoft motion camera kinect. This application has Speech-Recognition, as pointed out by the developer who coded this on his blog.

KinDriver has a Speech-Recognition feature too, so you can enable/disable tracking or execute the special-command. For the moment I will release the current KinDriver version which is designed for use with GTA (San Andreas). I will add extended SR features (meaning you can edit the commands), but I won’t promise any dates at this point.

NOTE: commands are: start, stop, deactivate, handbrake, enter, leave, getout

If you’re intrested in doing this you’ll first need x86 versions of these: .NET Framework 4Microsoft Speech Platform – Software Development KitMicrosoft Speech Platform – Server RuntimeKinect for Windows Runtime Language Pack. And Microsoft’s own Kinect SDK for Windows which can be obtained from here, and make sure you get the x86 version.

You should also be aware that this has some issues as the developer stated:

  1. Your Kinect is either not connected or has no power (crash on start)
  2. You have not installed all needed components for SR (crashes when you want to enable audio commands)
  3. Microsoft.Speech.dll is not in the same directory as KinDriver.exe(crashes when you want to enable audio commands)

As you can see from the videos embedded below, this application doesn’t respond quite well, but we hope that the developer fix this the bugs later on  or even perhaps code this application for Grand Theft Auto 4.
