    Balance has a 'canon' at the side that moves up and down- when you make a noise it fires balls across the screen that bounce off or can be hit at by a user- lots of fun for two people:

    The Kinect One does need a high spec laptop with a USB3 port (ones with blue plastic 'tongue' in them) and Windows 8- don't buy it if you haven't got these. The kind people at Kinect for Windows also sent one to me free, so thanks to them!
    Somability
    From the Somantics team at Cariad Interactive comes Somability. Three interactive applications that were developed for pupils and adults with PMLD and SLD. Download it from the Windows Store for free.
    {Somability store shot.png} {somability menu.png}
    The three applications are Reach, Flow and Balance.
    Reach is designed to activate falling shapes when the user reaches up- the falling shapes vary according to which shape is touched:
    {somability reach.png}
    Flow makes lines appear around movement- either with the camera feed or a blacked out abstract feed:
    {somability flow.png}
    Balance has a 'canon' at the side that moves up and down- when you make a noise it fires balls across the screen that bounce off or can be hit at by a user- lots of fun for two people:
    {Screenshot 2015-09-24 18.19.09.png}
    The tracking is excellent and there' plenty of interaction, engagement and communication skills to be developed using these three programs. It's also free (if you have the right equipment) which is always fab. There's also a version for the original Kinect click here for the link. Instructions for Somability can be found here as well.

    Kinect Evolution. Microsoft App Store- FREE download.

    When you hit part of the wall with your body the game just restarts! It does get quite tricky but stand far enough away from the KinectV2 and you can sometimes cheat and just put your arms by your side for example- great body awareness problem solving for ASD pupils.
    The speed runs quite fast at the moment but the lovely people who developed AhKonCha are currently working on a version for us where you can adjust the speed- watch this space (March 2015)
