Well, the day has finally fallen upon us. And just like that, the Kinect and its duo the ‘non-beta’ Software Development Kit has been packaged neatly in a box and can now be ordered through most main electronic retailers. We were a little surprised at the $250 mark, especially considering the actual Kinect is shipping without software, meaning it might be difficult for a beginner to plug the Kinect in to windows and be able to have something tangent to play with. However, Microsoft is saying this Kinect is way more powerful then its predecessors, and once software starts flooding the internet, users will have a plethora of apps and programs to fulfill their hearts utmost desire.
With enhanced skeleton tracking, voice, and sound control, and a camera that can view objects and people at much closer distances than before. Microsoft has created what it thinks will be a new footprint within the digital age. And as you may have noticed, we think the same.
We’ll be hosting a contest soon and will be giving a free Kinect for Windows Sensor away to one lucky participant. So come back often, and keep a keen eye out for instructions on how to enter. Also don’t forget to stop by our forum and say hello, we have a bunch of great ideas forming there and are always looking for people to share our futuristic Kinect rambles with.
