Microsoft has announced that Kinect for Windows will not only have new features but starting October 8th, it will be available in more countries.
Kinect for Windows will be coming to China on October 8th and to Chile, Colombia, the Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, and Poland later this fall.
The new SDK will be available on the 8th as well and will feature:
- 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.
