Posted on Thursday, June 16th, 2011 in code, Development, releases, sensors by the machinegeek

Microsoft has released the beta of their Kinect for Windows SDK.

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.

You can download the SDK beta here (Windows 7 only.)
