Microsoft revealed that it would sell a commercial version of a Kinect for Windows SDK to businesses from early in 2012 in an interview to FT. 

Dennis Durkin, Xbox chief financial officer said that,

“Once you bring down that price point, all of a sudden it opens up a bunch of new developer opportunities,” he said.

As well as academic interest, Microsoft has been working on a pilot programme with more than 200 companies for use of the Kinect across 25 industries, from healthcare to education, advertising and the automotive industry.

“It’s likely that many ‘killer apps’ will be developed within their respective fields,”.

Kinect developer community is very active and already there are numerous commercial application available for sale without Microsoft’s permission. So the release of official SDK will further ignite Kinect development.
