Kinect for Windows moves one step closer with Microsoft SDK expected next month
Back in February Microsoft teased at bringing Kinect to our PCs – Now at the MIX event in Las Vegas, the creator of the motion and gesture control gaming system for Xbox has detailed its plans for Windows – beginning with the release of a Software Developers Kit expected in May 2011.
The SDK promises enhancements to audio and motion sensing of the Kinect accessory to effectively integrate it with the PC market- with focus on sound reception, depth perception and high performance “robust” skeletal tracking capabilities.
Microsoft’s success with the Xbox’s Kinect has soared to over 10-million worldwide sales, so developers will no doubt be eager to get moving and experimenting with the “non-commercial use” SDK for the desktop platform when it’s launched. Developers and interested parties can get the full details and subscribe to updates at the official “Kinect for Windows SDK beta” release page at Research.Microsoft.com
