About the Author

Sean Kean is an artist and entrepreneur living in Brooklyn, New York. With a background spanning engineering, art, education, and travel, he is passionate about simplifying complex technology in order to make tools more accessible to others. Insatiable in his curiosity, the author has filled his passport as a flight attendant, rediscovered learning through play as an early childhood educator, studied the streets and buildings of New York City in order to earn both a taxi driver license and real estate sales license, and has been programming well enough to be dangerous for more than 20 years. Sean is currently working to bridge the gap between the physical and digital worlds at HERE, Inc. (http://here.st), to bring volumetric 3D TVs mainstream with the VoxieBox (www.voxiebox.com), and to help professionals working with volumetric depth cameras, software, and displays to connect to each other through the Volumetric Society (www.volumetric.org) via a publication, conference, and local chapter meetups you can help set up in your city.

I am very far from understanding the code, but can say that "Meetthe Kinect" book can be useful for every body who can read. It is one of not many tech books that reading will not send you into sleep mode.
The authors did extremely great job in research of history and present of Microsoft Kinect and similar 3d space scanning technology.
What ever your profession are teacher, doctor, animator or scientist this book is great way to understand new technology. Best of it even if you don't understand code and skip few pages with code examples, you will not only understand what Kinect is about, but by the end of the book you'll imagine how to use Kinect in your profession.

And if you plan to start code for Kinect research where to start is already done for you.

You might have heard about the Kinect. You might be already using it for a project. You might not even know what a Kinect is. In any of these cases this is a book you should get now. Without burying you in tons of geek-speak this book gives you a great overview of the cutting edge of this soon to be ubiquitous technology. As you will find out from this book it's not JUST about the Kinect and this technology goes far beyond gaming. If you have any interest in the future of computing pick up a copy of this! We will all be interfacing with computers in a whole new way.
