Update on Kinect for Windows – Beta 2 of SDK and new website!

Today in the first blog post on the brand new Kinect for Windows Blog – Craig Eisler, who is the General Manager for Kinect for Windows, has announced the launch of the brand new Kinect for Windows website. Along with the awesome new website, they are also releasing Beta 2 of the Kinect for Windows SDK. More than 200 companies are taking part in the pilot program to create experiences with Kinect on Windows with a Kinect for Windows commercial program coming in early 2012. For more information, I recommend reading Craig’s blog post on the Kinect for Windows Blog.

Today marks the 1-year anniversary of Kinect and Steve Clayton has an excellent write-up on Kinect over on Next at Microsoft that really makes you look at how Kinect has changed things over the last year but also makes you think about new and exciting possibilities with Kinect. Oh and watch the above video. It’s really, really, cool!
