The Kinect for Windows Sensor (For Developers Only) from Microsoft is not the same as the motion-tracking, voice-activated gaming controller for the Xbox 360, but it's a tool for developers to use when creating new motion-tracking applications for Windows computers. While you won't be able to play your favorite Kinect games or connect to the Xbox 360, the Kinect for Windows sensor can be used with the Kinect for Windows Commercial Software Development Kit (SDK).

Connecting to a computer running Windows 7 or Windows Embedded Standard 7 via a USB port, the Kinect for Windows allows a variety of different input methods for the computers, such as gestures, voice activation and more. You can connect up to four Kinect for Windows when using them in conjunction with Kinect for Windows Commercial SDK.

Note! The Kinect for Windows sensor is intended to be used with the Kinect for Windows Commercial Software Development Kit, which is only licensed to developers and not sold. This product is not for use with the Xbox 360 video game entertainment system

Kinect for Windows Hardware

Near Mode
Near Mode enables the camera to see objects as close as 40 centimeters in front of the device without losing accuracy or precision, with graceful degradation out to 3 meters
USB Harmony
With a shortened USB cable and a smaller dongle, the Kinect for Windows sensor ensures reliability across a broad range of computers and improves coexistence with other USB peripherals
Support and Software Updates
The Kinect for Windows sensor includes a one-year warranty, support and access to software updates for both speech and human tracking

Kinect for Windows Commercial Software Development Kit (SDK)

For Developers Only
The Kinect for Windows sensor is intended to be used with the Kinect for Windows Commercial Software Development Kit, which is only licensed to developers and not sold. This product is not for use with the Xbox 360 video game entertainment system
Commercial Ready
The installer makes it easy to install Kinect for Windows runtime and driver components for end-user deployments
Raw Sensor Streams
The depth sensor can see objects as close as 40 centimeters and also communicates more information about depth values outside the range than was previously available. There is also improved synchronization between color and depth, mapping depth to color and a full frame API
Skeletal Tracking
The Kinect for Windows sensor provides more accuracy and skeletal tracking now enables control over which user is being tracked by the sensor
Advanced Speech and Audio Capabilities
The latest Microsoft Speech components and an updated English Language Pack allow for improved language recognition accuracy. In addition, the appropriate runtime components are now automatically installed with the runtime installer
API Improvements
The Kinect for Windows sensor enhances consistency and ease of development. New developers should have a much easier time learning how to develop with Kinect for Windows and all developers will be more productive
Required Processor 32-bit (x86) or 62-bit (x64) processor
Dual-core 2.66GHz or faster
Required Operating System Windows 7 or Windows Embedded Standard 7
Required Memory 2GB of RAM

    Even Better Than My Expectations

    By EnigmaticWraith

    About Me Frequent Player

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Easy To Use
    • Fast Setup

    Cons

    • Short Cord

    Best Uses

    • Interactivity
    • Visual Art

    Comments about Microsoft Kinect for Windows Sensor (For Developers Only):

    I bought this to add to my Visual and Interactive art, and it works even better than I'd hoped. Skeleton tracking is fast, and there's virtually no lag on the color or the depth stream; setup was also extremely fast and easy. The one thing about it that I wish were different is the cord: it's a little short for what I use it for, however this is a very small issue.
