Intro to Unity 5 and Kinect

New training videos for Unity 5 and the Kinect

Hey everybody!

Recently fellow Evangelists Katherine Harris, Adina Shanholtz and myself went to GaymerX3 and spoke on Unity 5 and Kinect development.

We did a basic tutorial of Unity 5 game development, as well as how to use the Kinect as the Controller for your Unity 5 game.

We put versions of both of those talks on Channel 9. So if you’d like a basic overview of Unity 5, or want to know more about using the Kinect with your Unity 5 project, check out these videos!
