MS has “no plans” to release open-source drivers for next-gen Kinect

Kinect not open source

From the IEEE Spectrum:

Last night, we heard from a member of the Kinect for Windows developer team that they have “no plans” to release open source drivers for the next generation Kinect, meaning that all of the awesome and magical things that the original Kinect enabled for robotics won’t evolve into even more awesome and more magical things with Microsoft’s new sensor.

Sigh.
