NI mate version 2.07
We’re proud to release NI mate v2.07. This release adds initial support for the new Intel RealSense F200 sensor (R200 coming later) with face and skeleton tracking as well as 3D scanning capabilities.
This release is initially available for only Windows computers.
Please note that the RealSense functionality may contain bugs that will be solved later.
- Face tracking: Landmark data is collected from the user’s face and used in solving Facial Action Units (FACS). In addition, landmark data is outputted over OSC to the 3rd party software of your choice.
- Hand tracking: Hand skeleton tracking is supported. Tracked joints include the palms, metacarpals, proximal phalanges and distal phalanges.
- Gestures: Hand tracking module also allows recognizing hand gestures. For now, 4 gestures are supported: Thumb up, thumb down, hand wave and button tap. More gestures will be added later
- 3D scanning: The RealSense cameras contain powerful scanning facilities. NI mate allows scanning the user’s face and storing this data in .obj format.
To use an RealSense (F200) sensor in NI mate, please make sure to download and install the Intel RealSense runtime and the DCM for your sensor type (if not already installed): https://software.intel.com/en-us/intel-realsense-sdk/download

Some computers may experience issues if the RealSense sensor is used concurrently with another sensor such as the Kinect.
On rare occasions the RealSense sensor software may crash. In these cases, restart NI mate and see if the problem persists.
In case of other issues please submit a bug report in our support system at email@example.com or use the problem reporter functionality in NI mate, available through the help menu. Please describe the problem as precisely as possible.
