  • Oculus Rift is supported via Oculus Home for Windows.
  • HTC Vive and all other OpenVR compatible head-mounted displays, as well as VR controllers such as Oculus Touch require Steam and SteamVR.
  • Kinect 1 and PrimeSense sensors are supported only via OpenNI software (Win32).
  • Kinect 2 is supported via Kinect for Windows SDK 2.0 (Windows 8.1 & 10 only). Tested to work with October 2014 release (2.0.1410) of Kinect for Windows SDK 2.0.
  • Mocap solutions (OptiTrack, Perception Neuron, Vicon, Xsens, etc.) are supported via their respective Unity plugins.

See readme for further information.

RUIS for Processing (download version 0.90)
Includes an example where RUIS is used to control Blender. RUIS supports Kinect, PlayStation Move.me, Wiimotes, multi-display stereo-rendering, and projector keystone correction! RUIS for Processing will work on Windows (32- and 64-bit), OSX, and Ubuntu. This release contains many improvements and bug fixes.

REQUIRED
 * You need Processing version 1.5.1 with Java.
* You also need SimpleOpenNI 0.27 library for Processing.

OPTIONAL
 * If you want to use Kinect, you need everything that SimpleOpenNI depends on (OpenNI, NITE, PrimeSense drivers). Note that the SimpleOpenNI installation links in RUIS for Processing’s README.txt are outdated and should not be used. In order to get SimpleOpenNI 0.27 to work, you should download and install all the 32-bit drivers in this package.
* Wiimote MotionPlus controllers are supported only through GlovePIE (version 0.43 tested to work with RUIS, while 0.45 doesn’t seem to work). GlovePIE 0.43 supports only Motion Plus extension, and not the new Wiimotes that have built-in Motion Plus.

Further information about RUIS for Processing can be found in the Javadoc and the README.txt in the RUIS package.
