Kinect's SDK released by Microsoft

Microsoft has now released an SDK, albeit in beta form, for Kinect. This is for hobbyist-use only and includes drivers, APIs for raw sensor streams, audio functionality, sample code and other useful material.

I expect this means that Kinect will be used for research purposes a lot more in the immediate future (which can only be a good thing); in fact I would bet that in the next few months many new pieces of work with the device at their core will be submitted to academic journals and conferences.
