The Kinect disrupted way more than gaming when it was released in 2010; it made gestural control an affordable reality and found its way into myriad other industries. 2013 is bringing us Leap Motion, MYO, and improved tracking for the Kinect and Asus cameras. Learn how to harness these emerging technologies for healthcare applications just as they hit the market.

In just 75 minutes, everyone will have created a basic software application to track 16 parts of the human skeleton, the human face, and fingers. The only thing we ask of each participant is to bring an idea of how this tracking can be applied to a simple healthcare issue to make at home care easier.
