General Notes

There is a Kinect for Windows, but this is not it. The drivers for this Kinect were developed by the OpenSource community, and more information can be found here.

I have not been able to get the drivers working on a Windows machine, but was able to set up a machine running Ubuntu fairly easily by doing the following:

  1. sudo apt-get install freenect (install the libfreenect software)
  2. freenect-glview (test that the installation works - should see a video image and infrared image on the screen)

There are also Python wrappers for the freenect software.
