It was never one of the better-kept secrets around, and Microsoft has now confirmed that a non-commercial Kinect for Windows software development kit (SDK) will be available sometime this spring.
This release is described as a ‘starter kit,’ “to make it simpler for the academic research and enthusiast communities to create rich natural user interfaces using Kinect technology.” A commercial release is planned for a later date.
Nonetheless, Microsoft claims this ‘starter’ SDK will provide access to “deep Kinect system information such as audio, system application-programming interfaces, and direct control of the Kinect sensor.”
