Dean, Craig Martin at U-Mass/Amherst is the brains behind this. We're just now getting it set up and actually totally integrated into Jmol now. It's two pieces -- the Jmol side and the server/Kinect side. The latter is available as compiled Mac binary -- so far this needs a Mac to run -- but just ask Craig about it.

Is there anywhere to get more details info (source, binaries) for the "Molecular Playground" setup?  I looked at the web site, but the details are sparse.  I'd love to set something like this up here.

This is in preparation for Mario Kosmiskas integrating his Jmol Android and NET apps into core Jmol. Both Android and NET will be separate Java/C## projects (within the Jmol Sourceforge project) that link to the Jmol project, so developers not interested in those won't need the Android SDK.

By specifying a port number on the Jmol command line, you will be able to communicate with Jmol via that port essentially like applets communicate with each other using SYNC commands. Adam has written a Kinect-driven "host" that takes this Jmol app as its client. Jmol listens asynchronously on the port for raw mouse motions, script commands, and SYNC messages using a simple JSON protocol, and reports back to the host when a script has completed. Adam has installed this at U-Mass Amherst as the Molecular Playground http://molecularPlayground.org and we are currently installing a version of this at St. Olaf.
