Microsoft Launches Kinect SDK

Microsoft has released a free beta version of an SDK that allows developers to create apps for its Kinect motion-sensing controller. The controller broke sales records when it debuted as an input device for the Xbox, and now developers can use it for PC applications as well. Eventually the device could allow enterprise users to interact with applications through a natural user interface, similar to the one in the movie Minority Report.

“This SDK really helps people move toward that,” says Microsoft’s Anoop Gupta. “We will see a world where computing becomes much more natural and intuitive.”
