The design is very modular, and replacing individual components (like the motor) when they fail shouldn’t be a problem. No soldering required to disassemble. Microsoft used four kinds of screws, including some hated security bits: T6, T10, T10 security, and Phillips #0. Without a service manual, repair will be quite a challenge. Microsoft has not made a service manual available.

  1. How usable is a Kinect without an XBox? Can one wire it up some how and use it drive custom applications?

  2. Ah, never mind, I’ve now seen the bounty!

  3. Any idea why they needed a muffin fan? Wonder what generates enough heat to require a fan?

  4. I would venture to guess that the fan is to remove the heat from the cooling device( peltier ). I saw the PrimeSense design mentioned a cooling device which was probably for maintaining operational sensitivity levels of one of the sensors.
