Introduction

I’m sure by now you have heard that the Kinect SDK has been released by Microsoft. I recently had a chance to Guest Blog for the Microsoft MVP Award Program Blog on “Getting the Most out of the Kinect SDK”. Now before we get started learning about it let’s look at what it is:

*Kinect for Xbox 360 or simply Kinect (originally known by the code name Project Natal)[8] is a motion sensing input device by Microsoft for the Xbox 360 video game console. Based around a webcam-style add-on peripheral for the Xbox 360 console it enables users to control and interact with the Xbox 360 without the need to touch a game controller through a natural user interface using gestures and spoken commands.[9] The project is aimed at broadening the Xbox 360's audience beyond its typical gamer base.[10] Kinect competes with the Wii Remote Plus and PlayStation Move with PlayStation Eye motion controllers for the Wii and PlayStation 3 home consoles respectively.
