      I don’t know whether external camera can be connected to the tablet, I haven’t tried to do so.
      And yes, Kinect can distinguish different parts of your body, I mean track your body parts/joints, its position and orientation.

      I would start from the begging. Firstly test it out whether your Kinect is working properly on PC? Maybe some other sample codes/apps?

      I haven’t deployed it anywhere, just tested it out in Unity Play Mode. I’m not sure whether some workaround would work on this project.
