Kinect for Windows SDK Arriving this Spring

In a blog post yesterday, Microsoft reported at a recent gathering of “a handful of Microsoft thinkers and select media”, Craig Mundie, Microsoft’s chief research and strategy officer, and Don Mattrick, president, Interactive Entertainment Business, revealed a non-commercial Kinect for Windows Software Development Kit will be released this spring.

It seems that every couple of days, people are releasing videos demoing various new uses for the device beyond just interacting with the Xbox 360. From academic research and medical explorations to robotics and entertainment, the possibilities seem limited only by community creativity.

A rabid Apple fanboy and lover of all things Sony, Marc spends his days banging away code on his MacBook and his nights glued to his Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. On the few occasions when he actually leaves the house, you can usually find him at Best Buy, Gamestop or his local Apple Store.
