Note on setting up "Windows Hello"
- Kinect2 -- XBox One Kinect
- Optional - kinect mount clip
- Kinect2 USB3 adapter
- PC with USB3 port
- Windows 10 pro 64-bit
My kids stopped using Kinect2 for a while, so I took it and bought the adapter for PC (around $30-$35). You can buy Kinect2 from ebay around $40-$90. Btw, USB3 port is required.
Install S/WIf you don't want to install Kinect2 SDK (download page), follow this instruction.
Python S/WSo far, this is the only one works well -- https://github.com/Kinect/PyKinect2
Windows Hello is great. IIRC, there were some solutions like this a while back before Win10. It was a commercial s/w using regular webcam, but I remember it wasn't cheap for just for logging in.
Win10 Hello face recognition is instantaneous. Python S/W is good to play around.
