If anyone wants to do some design thinking, I'd love to improve model loading experience: https://worklist.net/21312

@PhilipRosedale I noticed on twitter you were asking about Kinect C++ experience. https://twitter.com/philiprosedale/status/838823621900410880
This is my jam (I spent time at MS Research, did my thesis doing CV on Kinect). Are you still looking for this? I see that Beta 37 uses Kinect for feetmapping.

Yes, @dustinfreeman We are trying to get the Kinect working reasonably well for tracking the body, so that we can offer it as an additional option to be used with out without HMD/Hand Controllers to drive your avatar. We are in the middle of working on it. Probably the biggest problem we have with it is that the tracking of the hands is very unstable. We've seen researchy vids from Microsoft of really amazing hand tracking with it, but possibly that is not code that is available in the standard SDK for the Kinect 2?
