Winners of a new Kinect contest announced

Matt Cutts has just announced the winners of his Open Kinect hacking contest.

Matt decided to run his own Open Kinect contest after being inspired by Adafruit Industries  contest.

The first $1000 prize goes to the person or team that writes the coolest open-source app, demo, or program using the Kinect. The second prize goes to the person or team that does the most to make it easy to write programs that use the Kinect on Linux.

He was so inspired he ended up declaring seven $1000 winners!

The first two winners fell into the categories of coolest open-source app, demo, or program and the last five winners for making an easy way to write programs under Linux.
