I am wondering if anyone out there is planning to play around with Kinect for Windows SDK on a Windows Embedded Standard 7 image? If yes, can you share what the usage scenario you think could be?
For those who have not seen the announcement, the SDK will be available here:
EDIT: The beta of the SDK can now be downloaded from here.
The Kinect SDK beta isn't yet available (at least to those outside of Microsoft). The landing page is still a "coming soon" page...
You are correct. I guess I am a so enthusiast about it, that I dreamt it was already there :). The question is still valid though. Anyone thinking of specific scenarios for embedded devices?
Yes very much so. WES7 will be our primary platform for kinect investigations. Let's talk more off line. -jeff
Yes very interested. Any ideas as to when the SDK will become available to developers outside of Microsoft ?
This shouldnt be very long now before the SDK is available.
Please share your ideas, proof of concepts and projects once it is!
"Spring" finishes on May, 31. Can "later this spring" mean end of June or even October? As I remember, previously MS promised to make the SDK public only on Autumn... Everybody waits for this product, but nobody can name at least approximate date of release :(
I hear you and I wish I could tell you exactly when. It is any time soon, definitively not October. Stay tuned
The Beta of the SDK is now public. You can go download it here:
Hi Olivier, we're starting to follow/support a Master Degree thesis about innovative and natural UI on an Embedded WES7 device, equipped with Kinect, for disabled people to help them with home automation and mobile phones.
Keep us posted on this project!
