The long awaited Microsoft Kinect SDK has been released! The SDK, currently in beta, is a programming toolkit intended for Kinect application developers. The package includes drivers, APIs for raw sensor streams/human motion tracking, installation documents, and other resource materials and will support C++, C#, and Visual Basic.
Boasting an easy, fast installation process with no complex configuration, the package also includes sample code, along with over 100 pages of technical documentation for those looking to get started in Kinect development right away. The current SDK package, however, is only available for non-commercial purposes. A commercial version will be available at a later date. Links available below
