Technorati: , , , , , , ,

A truly bizarre scientific experiment was held recently in which the newly released Microsoft Kinect was hacked to hell in a handbasket with the results being that you could control the Kinect from a Windows PC. Then, even more recently, a Kinect open source driver was released and now the NUI group has mentioned they will release an SDK and Windows driver as open source when they achieve $10,000 in donations. Since all this leads to the probability of controlling your avatar in Second Life with the Kinect, it can only be left to the imagination as to how many people will prefer the Kinect versus a standard keyboard.

Update: A Google employee has added another contest to see who can develop the coolest app for the Kinect and who can make it easy to write programs for the Kinect.
