Kinect for Windows Developer Kit – The journey continues…

This week I received a very nice gift – My Kinect for Windows developer kit!

You may have already seen a lot of blog posts on unboxing the sensor, etc. but I won’t be blogging the same. At first my focus was creating 101 tutorials but since everyone is doing this my plans are going into another direction.
The new sensor opens a new era for Kinect and this made me see some posibilities that you might hear from in the future.

Note - By receiving the dev kit my blog series on Kinecting AR drone is put on hold but part I is already available here.

    Cool! Have you tested if Kinect Fusion works with the new sensor? I know other ToF sensors can’t do accurate reconstruction, and I’m really curious to know if Microsoft solved the problem. Thanks!

      No I haven’t tried it yet, waiting for my new laptop to arrive!

    What are the system requirements for V2? I’m working on building a PC or buying a laptop, and wondered if you have an idea what ram, processor, video card level is needed to play with the new kinect.

      Depends on why you are building it? If you are in the developer program you should receive an e-mail with the specs that are required, if not I’d suggest to sit back and wait for the final specs!
