The code was inspired by the idea that a work space should be able to sense the presence of the person who it belongs to. When technology can acquire information about its surroundings it open up the possibility of a more fluid interaction. In this case the Kinect can sense when you get up from your chair and will automatically shut off the screen, this saves power and is more convenient than having to do it manually. The target user for this would be a stationary desktop computer user who can position their Kinect and then leave it in place. We also included other features such as the ability to change the brightness of the screen using a hand held up to the sensor. Any other features can be added to the program and controlled with a hand held up to the Kinect.
