Kinect has changed the way people play games and experience entertainment. Now, Kinect for Windows offers the potential to transform how people interact with computers and Windows-embedded devices in multiple industries, including education, healthcare, retail, transportation, and beyond.

 

The release of the Kinect for Windows sensor and software development kit (SDK) for commercial applications opens up the limitless possibilities offered by Kinect technology. Together, the hardware and software offer a superior development platform for Windows and a higher quality, better performing experience for end users. (Note: The sensor unit does not ship with any software, and will only operate with an application developed for Kinect for Windows. In addition, the Kinect for Windows sensor is intended to be used with the Kinect for Windows SDK or an application that was developed with this SDK. The SDK includes drivers, APIs, sample code and more. )

 

  • newegg Commercial Ready The Kinect for Windows SDK offers an installer, which makes it easy to install the Kinect for Windows runtime and driver components for end-user deployment.
  • newegg Enhanced Sensor Capabilities The Kinect for Windows sensor expands the possibilities for innovation with features like Near Mode, which enables the depth camera to see objects as close as 40 centimeters in front of the sensor. In addition, up to 4 Kinect sensors can now be plugged into the same computer.
  • newegg Software Improvements One of the many improvements to the Kinect for Windows SDK is improved skeletal tracking, which lets developers control which user is being tracked by the sensor. In addition, the latest Microsoft Speech components, along with an improved acoustic model significantly improve speech recognition accuracy.

Ehhh

Pros: If it works, it works decently well, but nowhere near as good as the sensors with the Kinect One.

Cons: Too finicky about what USB controller it's connected to, which led to not being able to use it on my main system but instead on a $350 budget laptop, where it could run, but anything utilizing it ran poorly.

Resolution on it is not what I was expecting, and limbs would flail about when controlling ragdolls.

Depends on application

Pros: Better hardware than xbox kinect
Plug and play
Built in microphones, voice control was awesome.

Cons: Price
Sluggish with 7MC setup
Not that many useful apps available, at least for what I needed.

Overall Review: Set this up on my HTPC to control Windows 7 media center. It worked, however not to my satisfaction. In fact, im pretty sure a hacked xbox 360 one would have been better.
May buy again once the price comes down and they get the software working better, but hey thats all part of buying these new gadgets i guess.

Note: I bought an open box version but everything was all there and intact. Paid 180 vs 250, returning for refund.

If you plan to use this for a 7MC HTPC setup dont expect much more than a very expensive microphone. (Which by the way, did work awesomely for voice control.) That is unless you find some kind of software that works a whole lot better than the one I used, which I had to pay for as well. My advice is either hack an xbox 360 version, or wait for price to come down.

If you have the money...

Pros: Easy to install, works with the few SDK samples available. The Xbox 360 Kinect also works with the SDK samples so long as you have the powered USB adapter with the slim version Xbox sensor it works fine. A Microsoft Kinect Sensor Power Supply is $35 at the MS Store but knock offs are much less buyer beware of damaging your sensor. I did not try the older models sensors but they too are supposed to work. Mid 2012 MS is supposed to begin disabling the game Kinect Sensors from working with the Windows SDK (and probably the OpenKinect stuff as well) So then you will have to buy this one or an older game sensor without Near Mode.

Cons: A bit expensive for the only addition to the standard sensor "Near Mode" that currently appears to only gives you one large point between your chest and head. Hand tracking or upper body tracking not implemented yet. In the future I am sure more sophisticated tracking will be added (or I have just not found it yet) You can do everything in the current SDK samples with the much cheaper XBox 360 sensor until mid year when MS will no longer allow them to work with Windows. Also there are conflicting installation instructions. What worked for me: Uninstall all old Kinect and speech drivers then install the SDK version 1 which includes everything all (samples drivers and all) in one install. Then all works well.

Overall Review: The few crude examples are not too much to get excited about. There appears to be much more powerful abilities when using the OpenKinect software (openkinect.org) and other hackers who have published their work. google "Teaching Kinect to recognize objects" or "Kinect 3D Scanning" to see more advanced uses of the Kinect device. Warning don't programatically move the sensor's ElevationAngle very often or for any length of time, you can burn the motor out in the Kinect. It draws some hefty current.
