I would like to create an interactive installation with Kinect v2 for Windows . I have a question concerning about accuracy of Kinect . The project will be touch screen on plexiglass ( see picture).

For Ex: People will be inside dark room with plexiglass ( size of about 200cm to 200cm ) with rear projection . They will see some buttons on plexiglass (it will be projection) and when they click on button sound system will generate sound files .

My question is if Kinect v2 will be enough for this to build a touch Plexiglas touchable screen or will be insufficient and I should think to add additional sensors ?

I think I will try to code that in Processing but maybe you can give me better advices?

if you want to use backprojection you can use LLP too but for that big screen you ,must use 2 or 4 cameras,i have tested kinect V1 for Xbox 3 years ago well ,it wasn’t accurate for my 50” size screen and i had installed kinect on top with a little angle but maybe i was wrong because i didn’t spent much time to test it more
by the way check this guys too maybe it can help you
