In this experiment solid objects are held in front of Kinect and they are recognized.The names of the objects have been thought to the Kinect before only. The process of teaching Kinect to recognize objects is not very difficult. They have used OpenKinect(drivers) + OpenCV(image processing and recognition) + FestVox (speech synthesis). All of the processing and recognition occurs in real time.
