In the attempt to build a touchscreen using Kinect and Processing, I’ve constructed a screen with material that stretches when touched. The change in depth of the screen is picked up by the Kinect camera and is displayed in an ‘Average Point Tracking’ Processing sketch.
After installing Daniel Shiffman’s Open Kinect for Processing library, I kept getting an error message stating “a library relies on native code that’s not available, or only works properly when the sketch is run as a 64-bit application.” After many trials attempting to get the kinect to communicate with Processing, I finally got it up and running.

By converting the longitude and latitude values from strings to float values, I was successfully able to plot them onto the map.
