Kinect SDK–Dawn of a new era

Kinect SDK–Dawn of a new era

Kinect SDK Beta Launched today

http://channel9.msdn.com/events  you will be able to download all the sessions and slides from tomorrow after 24 hours.

 

This is Beta release and only for non-commercial purposes. I will be posting more about NUI and Kinect SDK in future. For now the summary and major highlights:

 

Code Camp Team Interviews

24 hours prior to the launch event, Code Camp was hosted with 30+ students, pro devs, hackers and enthusiasts who all built projects on top of Kinect. We have been doing deeper interviews with Code Camp participants on their projects (WWT sample below). These videos will be available in the days following launch on Channel 9.

Coding4Fun’s Kinect Project Gallery

We now have repository (comments, ratings, tweets, FB sharing, etc) on Channel 9 where we’ll have Kinect SDK projects showcased daily from our blogger extraordinaire, Greg Duncan!

Coding4Fun Toolkit

A handy developer API for things like converting a byte[] array to a bitmap for Windows Forms and WPF or getting the distance of a particular pixel in one line of code.

Kinect for Windows SDK VB Samples

All of the SDK samples have now been ported over to Visual Basic Express using today’s build (ShapeGame shown below)!

Kinect Paint

A fun, Metro-esque designed paint with your hands app (Drawing the word “cool” with a “caffeinated” apperance) from Evan Lang and Laurent Bugnion.

Full List of Content Links

Note that some content URLs are available now (ex: CodePlex projects, Channel 9 Live page), but the actual information isn’t available. Some downloads (ex: VB samples) are available to download, but there are no links to them so they are undiscoverable.
