Submission + - MS Kinect SDK comming to a windows near you! (microsoft.com)

fredr1k writes: Microsoft figured there is some movement in the Kinect hacking scene. They have now announced a Kinect SDK for Windows. (Though only for Academics & Enthusiasts)

Ever since the November launch of Kinect for Xbox 360, enthusiasts and academic researchers alike have expressed their excitement and intense interest in the possibilities created by the products ability to enable users to bring games and entertainment to life without using a controller.

While Microsoft plans to release a commercial version at a later date, this SDK will be a starter kit to make it simpler for the academic research and enthusiast communities to create rich natural user interfaces using Kinect technology.

Seems like they took impression from the hackers and embraced their movement!

Now I only wonder who is going to implement Kinect controll into Media Portal and XMBC?
