Are you a software developer who thinks and feels that the Xbox One from Microsoft has plenty of potential to take off in a big way? If that is the case, and you want to do your bit to carve your name into the realms of history, you can be quite sure that you should do all you can in order to make your mark. Microsoft’s new version of Kinect for Xbox One will also be making its way to the PC platform, just like how its predecessor did.
There is one thing that you should know about the new Kinect for Windows sensor, and it is this – it will not be available to the public until some time in the year 2014, although developers are able to place an application for an early $400 development kit which kicks off today – and this particular offer is due before July 31st at 9AM PT. Should the developers in question be accepted, $400 will be able to net them early SDK access, a pre-release “alpha” version of the device, and at launch, a final retail version, as well as private access to APIs as well as the Kinect for Windows engineering team via private forums and webcasts. We do look forward to this August for additional details.
