Use Kinect while Sitting

In the picture on the homepage, the person in the image was sitting down. Does the Coding4Fun Kinect Toolkit support tracking when a person is sitting?

Hey Jason, I'm not using skeleton tracking in that picture, I'm only leveraging depth information there.  The C4F Kinect Toolkit is a helper to the Kinect for Windows SDK, not a SDK by itself.

What I've personally found playing with the Kinect for Windows SDK is if Kinect can see your hips, it can get a skeleton lock.  I know i've kept a skeleton lock while sitting but that was after it aquired it with me standing up.  I haven't tried mounting the kinect in a position where I'm sitting and can see my hips and it locks with the 7/29/2011 SDK release.
