In order to get the kinect to work with Processing you need to install a couple of things.

First of all you need to install Processing:

Next you need SimpleOpenNI:

Unzip to: Documents/Processing/libraries/

If you are on Windows you also need to download the Kinect SDK

Make sure to close Processing (command + q), or it won't find the SimpleOpenNI library.

In Processing Preferences check the box that says "Increase available memory to 256 MB" and change 256 to 1024.
