It looks like Microsoft is having a real busy week with Kinect – earlier this week it launched the “Kinect Effect” website and announced its upcoming commercial program. Today, on the day of the Kinect’s first birthday, it launched a brand new Kinect for Windows website. The revamped website features more information about the Kinect for Windows commercial program that’s coming early next year (something you business folk might want to check out).
In addition to the launch of the brand new site, Microsoft has also announced the release of the new version of the Kinect for Windows SDK. Now in beta 2, the updated software development kit brings new features such as faster skeletal tracking, better accuracy rate when it comes to skeletal tracking and joint recognition, and the ability to plug and unplug your Kinect without losing work/productivity. Expect a lot more Kinect projects to be launched in the coming year.
