Primesense Driver

Why: User interfaces based on gesture recognition make possible new applications in gaming and everyday computing.

I have a large suspicion that it's to do with the graphics driver (windows and Nvidia seem to be at war with their driver versions), but in the meantime, I wondered if there was a more recent firmware available for the Primesense sensor? PrimeSense was an Israeli 3D sensing company based in Tel-Aviv. PrimeSense had offices in Israel, North America, Japan, Singapore, Korea, China and Taiwan. PrimeSense was bought by Apple Inc. For $360 million on November 24, 2013. Instead you should supply their location in C: Program Files PrimeSense SensorKinect Driver. Afterwards, check if the 3 drivers show up in Windows' Device Manager under a 'PrimeSense' header Delete OpenNI's Java CLASSPATH environment variable via Windows' System control panel Advanced tab 4.

Key innovation: Developed the 3-D sensor system that Microsoft's Kinect device uses to track movement.

Primesense Device Driver Windows 10

PrimeSense has developed a system that uses an infrared projector and camera and a special microchip to track the movement of objects and individuals in three dimensions. The system can interpret specific gestures, making completely hands-free control of electronic devices a reality.


Download digibras driver. PrimeSense's platform was an integral part of Microsoft's Kinect, which enables users to play video games without a controller. Eight million of the devices sold in the 60 days after it went on sale.


Although the first application was for gaming, the company's hardware and software platform can be adapted to any type of electronic device. In collaboration with PC manufacturer Asus, PrimeSense has developed a set-top box that allows gesture control of a computer wirelessly connected to a television, providing a more intuitive way to integrate the two devices than the keyboard-type controllers used in current Internet TV systems. The company has also created an open application programming interface for its 3-D sensing platform in order to encourage developers to create new ways to use the technology.

Challenges and Next Steps:

The company is working on improving the resolution of its tracking system so it can recognize subtler movements and potentially even finger movements, which would allow users to input text.

I got this info from this page.
I was confused with different instructions for connecting Kinect to PC.
Actually I couldn't install OpenKinect drivers, but I come up with an
instruction 4 Dummies! :D

Primesense Driver Test

I would be glad if somebody makes something like this for OpenKinect.
Step 1
Uninstall any previews drivers, such as CLNUI, OpenKinect,..
Uninstalling a driver does not seem to be easy esp in case of OpenKinect
Step 2
Download and install the latest stable or unstable OpenNI Binaries from
OpenNI website.
There might be a security check message in this step and the next one. Don't
care and continue installing.
Step 3
Download Kinect Driver from the following link. The file name will be
Unzip the file and run
avin2-SensorKinect-0124bd2BinSensorKinect-Win32-5.0.0.exe Primesense Driver
Step 4
Step 5
Plug in Kinect. Wait till Windows finds and installs the drivers. Check if
the camera and motor drivers are installed through Control Panel->System
and.->System->Device Manager
Currently no driver for Audio available by Primesense, although there is one
provided by OpenKinect.
Check OpenNI samples. NiSimpleRead just reads the data for the center of
view into a console window. NiViewer gives you a color coded depth view
what the Kinect is looking at.
Step 7
Download and install the latest stable or unstable OpenNI Compliant
Middleware Binaries (NITE) from OpenNI website.
During installation, provide the following (free) PrimeSense key:
Step 8
Step 9
Replace xml files in C:Program Files (x86)Prime SenseNITEData and
C:Program Files (x86)OpenNIData with the ones in
avin2-SensorKinect-0124bd2NITEData and
Step 10
Checkout the NITE samples and have fun!
Error: the procedure entry point xnproductionNodeRelease could not be located in the dynamic link library openNI.dll
Sol: Ok, It is a version issue after all. By using unstable release of OpenNI/NITE, and then re-install the primesense kinect mods solves my problem.
Nathan wanted me to share with you how we got the Kinect hookuped with Motion Builder. It's straight forward for the most part:
Go to to get the Application and plugin for MotionBuilder
And here are the specific instructions/drivers that Brekel needs for it to work with MotionBuilder:
1) Make sure you have a separate power adapter for your Kinect, you'll need it.
If you bought a standalone Kinect it came with one in the box.
If you bought a Kinect with a XBox360 bundle you may have to order one from Microsoft.
2) If you already have Kinect drivers installed that are NOT from OpenNI, make sure you delete them from your system first!
For example the OpenKinect/libfreenect ones or the Code Laboratories CL NUI ones.
These usually show up under a 'libusb' folder in your Windows Device Manager, where you can also delete them,
3) Download and install OpenNI
Note that you want the stable version (v1.0.0.23), not the unstable one (v1.0.0.25)
4) Download and install the Kinect drivers
Run SensorKinect-Win32-5.0.0.exe file from the Bin folder
Note that you don't pull the one from the unstable branch, but the one from the master branch
(If you see an OSX and Linux installer in the bin folder you've got the wrong one!)
5) Download and install NITE (user tracking module)
Use this key during installation: 0KOIk2JeIBYClPWVnMoRKn5cdY4=
6) Make sure your Kinect is connected directly to your computer not through a USB hub
Your Windows Device Manager should look something like this:
7) Check if everything works by running one of the OpenNI samples:
C:Program Files (x86)OpenNISamplesBinReleaseNiSimpleViewer.exe
This should display a fullscreen videostream of the depth feed from your Kinect
8) If the sample works then you're ready to start Brekel Kinect 3D Scanner from your windows start menu.
If you have problems the OpenNI google groups are a great source for help and news:
Note: If your firewall asks for permission to open a port please hit accept.
This is needed for streaming the data across your local network, or between applications.
I got ask far as getting the Kinect work with the Brekel and MotionBuilder to recognize the Kinect. But I don't know how to use MotionBuilder so.. currently stuck there.
