Microsoft has announced that it will launch an SDK for its Kinect motion sensor for Windows, and Microsoft will be releasing the SDK free of charge for non commercial use, and will later release a commercial version.
Microsoft has said that the Kinect SDK for windows will be available in the spring, and this news is bound to be welcomed by hackers and DIYers who have been making great use of the Kinect since it was released last year.
The Kinect for Windows SDK is being developed and released by Microsoft Research (MSR) in collaboration with IEB. It will be available this spring as a free download, and will give academic researchers and enthusiasts access to key pieces of the Kinect system—such as the audio technology, system application programming interfaces and direct control of the Kinect sensor itself.
We have already seen some very cool stuff developed using the Microsoft Kinect, and now with an official SDK coming soon, we expect we will see lots more cool Kinect hacks.
