If you in Kinect development, i think you already seen video below. If not, dont miss it. It awesome!

Great job from Microsoft Research. Well done. And more great, papers which describe how it done available now.

KinectFusion: Real-Time Dense Surface Mapping and Tracking

KinectFusion: Real-time 3D Reconstruction and Interaction Using a Moving Depth CameraЕсли вы занимаетесь программированием под Kinect, то вы наверняка видели видео ниже. Если не видео, то обязательно посмотрите!

Ребята из Microsoft Research проделали грандиозную работу. И получили отличные результаты. И самое интересное они выложили в онлайн методы и описания, как это было сделано.

Flash Kinect

Kinect SDK to AS3 Socket server.Kinect SDK сокет сервер для Flash.

A while ago i wrote a simple socket server for Microsoft Kinect SDK beta to work with Flash. Code is little dirty and may have some errors, but anyway, here the KinectGate on github. Simple AS3 classes for quickstart also included. For the moment it send only 2D coordinates of all joints for tracked skeletons. Will add more to it when have time.

Tested with Microsoft SDK Kinect Beta (not OPENNI!!!)

KinectGate on


 Некоторое время назад написал простой сокет сервер для использования данных о скелете из Microsoft Kinect SDK в Flash. Код не совсем ровный, но свое дело делает ) Скачать KinectGate на github. В комплекте пара AS3 классов для быстрого старта. В данный момент пересылает только 2D координаты всех точек скелета в формате 0.0-1.0. Как будет время добавлю еще фич. )

Работает только с Microsoft SDK Kinect Beta (НЕ OPENNI!!!)

Finally! Kinect SDK beta for PC available!Вышел официальный Kinect SDK!

Microsoft release beta of Kinect 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.


This SDK includes the following features:

  • Raw sensor streams
  • Access to raw data streams from the depth sensor, color camera sensor, and four-element microphone array enables developers to build upon the low-level streams that are generated by the Kinect sensor.
  • Skeletal tracking
  • The capability to track the skeleton image of one or two people moving within the Kinect field of view make it easy to create gesture-driven applications.
  • Advanced audio capabilities
  • Audio processing capabilities include sophisticated acoustic noise suppression and echo cancellation, beam formation to identify the current sound source, and integration with the Windows speech recognition API.
  • Sample code and documentation
  • The SDK includes more than 100 pages of technical documentation. In addition to built-in help files, the documentation includes detailed walkthroughs for most samples provided with the SDK.
  • Easy installation


The SDK installs quickly, requires no complex configuration, and the complete installer size is less than 100 MB. Developers can get up and running in just a few minutes with a standard standalone Kinect sensor unit (widely available at retail outlets).

This SDK is designed for non-commercial purposes only; a commercial version is expected to be available at a later date.

 Наконец то вышел официальный Kinect SDK.

Microsoft Kinect SDK on May 19Microsoft Kinect SDK будет доступен 19 мая

Microsoft Kinect SDK will be available for developers on May 19.

With this SDK, you’ll be able to take advantage of:

  • The latest advances in audio processing, which include a four-element microphone array with sophisticated acoustic noise and echo cancellation for crystal clear audio.
  • Sound source localization for beamforming, which enables the determination of a sound’s spatial location, enhancing reliability when integrated with the Microsoft speech recognition API.
  • Depth data, which provides the distance of an object from the Kinect camera, as well as the raw audio and image data, which together open up opportunities for creating richer natural user interface experiences.
  • Highly performant and robust skeletal tracking capabilities for determining the body positions of one or two persons moving within the Kinect field of view.
  • Documentation for the APIs and a description of the SDK architecture.
  • Sample code that demonstrates how to use the functionality in the SDK.

This SDK is intended for non-commercial use to enable experimentation in the world of natural user interface experiences, with new state-of-the-art features planned for future releases that will continue to provide new ways to experiment.

UPDATE: And looks like Microsoft Kinect SDK will be open source!!!

UPDATE2: False alarm. NO open-source.Microsoft Kinect SDK будет доступен для разработчиков 19 мая.

С помощью этого SDK станут доступны:

  • Последние достижения в области обработки звука (в кинекте 4 микрофона).
  • Работа с картой глубины для объектов в поле зрения кинект камеры.
  • Доступ к информации о скелетной анимации одного или нескольких человек в поле зрения кинекта
  • Документация по API, и описание архитектуры SDK.
  • Примеры кода, который демонстрирует, как использовать функциональность SDK.
