As we reported yesterday Microsoft has today released their new Kinect for Windows SDK allowing developers to design and create new Kinect applications and projects building applications with C++, C# or Visual Basic.
The new Kinect for Windows SDK, supports Windows 7, and comes with everything a developer needs to start creating Kinect projects, with drivers, rich APIs for Raw Sensor Streams, natural user interfaces and resource materials all included in the new beta SDK.
Anoop Gupta, a distinguished scientist, Microsoft Research explains:
“The Kinect for Windows SDK opens up a world of possibilities to developers who want to unleash the power of Kinect technology on Windows,”
“We can’t wait to see what this community will create as we work together to build more natural, intuitive computing experiences.”
The new SDK has been designed to easily install on a Windows 7 system without any complex configuration required, allowing you to be up and running in juts a few minutes. So if you fancy putting that Kinect idea into action more information and to download the new Kinect for Windows SDK beta head over to the Microsoft Kinect SDK website.
