Microsoft Kinect Sensor Coming to PC February 1st

Microsoft Kinect Sensor is coming to a Windows PC near you, February 1st. The Microsoft Kinect retails for $249 (which seems a bit steep), but we'll see if its any different once we get a tear-down of the device.  Pre-orders are available now via Amazon


  • Utilize Kinect skeletal-tracking, sophisticated microphone array, and other sensor technologies
  • Link computers to Kinect devices running Windows 7 and Windows 8 Developer Preview
  • Run applications built with the Kinect for Windows Commercial Software Development Kit (SDK)
  • Use the Kinect for Windows SDK to build applications with C++, C#, or Visual Studio Basic by using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010
  • The sensor will only work on computers running the SDK software
