Kinect hacked to work on computers on CNN – “Filed under: Innovation”

The hack resulted from an “Open Kinect” challenge started by Adafruit Industries, a New York company that makes do-it-yourself electronics kits. The company gave the winner — a hacker identified in a blog post as Hector — a $3,000 prize, which he plans to put toward further hacks.

Adafruit says on its blog that opening Kinect is good for innovation.

“We know this subsidized / commodity hardware can now be used for robotics, art, science, education and more. For $150 it’s loaded with tons of great sensors and cameras — now it’s unlocked for creativity,” the blog says.
