MS opens arms to Kinect hackers

Microsoft has said it will “ignite creativity in an already vibrant ecosystem of enthusiasts” by releasing a Kinect SDK for the PC.

A non-commercial-use software development kit will be released this spring, Microsoft said. An edition for professional game and app development will be released at a later date.

In a statement the company was careful not to use the term hacks – a word which has connotations with other, more destructive forms of hardware manipulation – but it is clear Microsoft is now embracing Kinect manipulations.
