Microsoft Announces Windows Kinect SDK Kit, Will Be Released On Thursday

At 9:30 a.m. PST on Thursday Microsoft through their Channel 9 developer website will officially launch the Kinect for Windows SDK beta.

While speaking at a conference in Madrid Microsoft’s Spain President Maria Garaña announced that the SDK would be made available this week  and will include skeletal tracking, advanced audio capabilities and various other features that will be able to take advantage of various Kinect apps.

Developers can expect four-element microsoft array abilities, noise and echo cancellation capabilities and the ability to integrate with the Windows speech recognition API and beam formation to find current sound sources.

With millions of Kinect units sold in 2010 and strong sales continuing in 2011 the SDK beta kit will more than likely be utilized as quickly as possibly by Microsoft developers looking to cash in on the successful technology.

It will likely show up here: Kinect for Windows SDK beta
