Can’t wait for the new generation Kinect for Windows sensor? You can apply to take part in the Kinect for Windows developer kit program. This program, which begins in November 2013, will provide developers with tools and a pre-release sensor as soon as possible so they can start building new applications before general availability in 2014.

  • Direct access to the Kinect for Windows engineering team via a private forum and exclusive webcasts

  • Early SDK access (alpha, beta, and any updates along the way to release)

  • Private access to all API and sample documentation

  • A pre-release/alpha sensor

  • A final, released sensor at launch

There are a limited number of spots in the program. Please click the Apply Now button below to apply. Applications must be completed by July 31, 2013, 9:00 A.M. (Pacific Time).

We will begin notifying successful applicants in August.
