Yes, we did developed the integration between Jack and Kinect.  A video link in the right column on this page. www.siemens.com/plm/microsoft. Kinect (v1 Sensor) is supported with the Student version too.

 

From the available documentation in the install folder (…\docs\Jack_base_manual.pdf):

Kinect

An interface has been developed between Jack and the Kinect tool. This exploratory module can be found in: Modules – Plug Ins – Kinect. This module offers two modes of subject tracking: Scene Navigation and Human Posturing. Navigation looks at your arm gestures to maneuver the Jack (or Jill) figure through the scene. Posturing mode tracks your gross body postures and maps those to Jack (or Jill). Additional documentation can be accessed from the Kinect Module User Interface, and we encourage you to review this.

 

And from the release notes (…\docs\Jack_release_notes.pdf):

Microsoft Kinect for Windows Support

With Jack v8.0, the Microsoft Kinect for Windows sensor can be used to interact with humans in the scene. This introductory module can be found in: Modules – Plug Ins – Kinect. Two modes are supported: Scene Navigation and Human Posturing. Navigation looks at your arm gestures to maneuver Jack (or Jill) through the scene. Posturing mode tracks your gross body postures and maps those to the selected Jack or Jill figure. Much more information on this module is provided in the documentation which can be accessed from the Kinect Module User Interface. Support for the Kinect Sensor is included in the base product, however it requires a Kinect for Windows Sensor. The Microsoft Kinect for Windows sensor can be purchased directly from the Microsoft Store or other electronic retailers (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/kinectforwindows/purchase/)
