Kinect for Windows team today announced that the Kinect for Windows hardware will be coming to China on Oct-6th and will be available in six additional markets later this fall: Chile, Colombia, the Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, and Poland. Also the team is releasing Kinect for Windows SDK update with the following enhancements on Oct-6th.
- Enable businesses to do more with Kinect for Windows We are committed to opening up even more opportunities for the creation of new end user experiences. We’ll be adding features such as expanded sensor data access—including color camera settings and extended depth data—to continue to inspire innovative uses of the Kinect for Windows technology in new and different places.
- Improve developer efficiency We continue to invest in making our platform easier and more powerful for developers. That’s why we’ll be releasing more tools and samples in October, such as a new sample that demonstrates a “best in class” UI based on the Kinect for Windows Human Interface Guidelines.
- Extend our Windows tools and operating system support We want to make it easy for our customers to be able to build and deploy on a variety of Windows platforms. Our October update will include support for Windows 8 desktop applications, Microsoft .NET 4.5, and Microsoft Visual Studio 2012.
