Since Kinect's launch last year, there have been many cool videos created by developers that show Kinect being used in many different ways besides games for Xbox 360. Today is our chance to create some cool stuff with the SDK Microsoft has just released:

"The Kinect for Windows SDK beta is a programming toolkit for application developers. It enables the academic and enthusiast communities easy access to the capabilities offered by the Microsoft Kinect device connected to computers running the Windows 7 operating system.

The Kinect for Windows SDK beta includes drivers, rich APIs for raw sensor streams and human motion tracking, installation documents, and resource materials. It provides Kinect capabilities to developers who build applications with C++, C#, or Visual Basic by using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010."

The Kinect SDK is currently for non-commercial purposes only, but Microsoft is expected to release a commercial version in the near future.
