Drag and Drop Game Objects with Kinect

In this tutorial I am going to explain how to drag & drop Game objects in unity using Kinect. We will select a game-object by gripping hand on object. After selecting game object its shader will changed to yellow color, then we can drag or move game object on our scene. When we release hand cursor (Grip out), the game object will dropped at new position.

Step 1 – Set up Kinect to Unity.

 Create a Unity project. We need to import a Unity Asset (Kinect v2 with MS-SDK) that support Kinect.

 Now open unity asset store and login in to your unity asset store account if you don’t have create a new account and get the “Kinect v2 with MS-SDK($20)”, and import the package in a new unity project. This package contains some demo scenes and Kinect script which gives the bone orientation and rotation.
