Training using the zSight HMD and the Kinect

An excellent video showing how the Kinect can integrate with the zSight HMD to product a compelling and effective training scenario. Quoting the author of the video, David from 3DVia: "We made the choice to only use kinect to "watch" if the user is doing the correct motion he/she is supposed to be trained at: rotating the valve or walking. Engaging the body in the experience enables the trained person to take appropriate decision, based on a situation that is made as close as possible to the one he/she would face in an real emergency case The HMD also contributes to the presence of the virtual environment, stereo rendering have been disabled in the video."
