This part of the construction has been challenging and fun. There are no detailed plans for how the framing is to be built, so exact measurements and design are left to each maker. I believe we have a build that is stable and yet flexible enough to allow for minor adjustments. Since we chose to use an older short throw projector (made available after a recent SMART Board upgrade), it is likely that the projector itself will be replaced in a few years. Our design must allow for modification of the support structure as necessary to accommodate different projector models.
With the framing complete, it is time to test out the Kinect. Next week, the plan is to fine tune the projector's position, then mount the Kinect and computer for testing. Everything that I have read about calibration of the software is that this is the most time consuming part of the project. Wish us luck!
