Kinecticate: Kinect-powered Email

Chad Ruble wrote to me to share how he used a Kinect and the SimpleOpenNI library for Processing to help his mom send email messages:

My mom has lived with aphasia ever since she suffered a serious stroke twelve years ago. In the meantime, there’s been a revolution in communication – powered by social media. Like a lot of people, I use the phone less. One of my areas of interest has been bridging the digital “keyboard gap” for people like my mom.
