Now only get the Kinnect sensor without the XBOX bundle crap (=console) associated to it .

You can get this working really quickly... I had it going inside of 15 minutes and tracking skeletal points.

Indeed.
I quite like the possibility.
I will NOT buy an xbox, but admit that the kinect looked fun for parties.
Kinect games on PC would be a good compromise

Hmmm...the possibilities abound. Kinect version of Leisure Suit Larry anyone?

This could be a good move for Microsoft - with the type of "amateur" PC programmer that exists, we could see some really original uses outside of gaming for the Kinect that Microsoft never even thought of.

XBMC plugin would be epic.

And lmao @ Kinect Leisure Suit Larry...!

It has its uses, but in the end Kinect is completely unappealing to me as a serious gaming solution; sure it's cool, but having to stand and wave my arms during a gaming session would be beyond uncomfortable.

What's a Dremel?

Yea don't think they have meant this to be a gaming device for windows what it's meant for is for ppl to play around with the sensors easier (lol yes i am thinking of buying one just for my pc so i can get programming my own minority report :P mixed in with Hal from 2001: A Space Odyssey :P "hello dave :P").

Mind u on a more serious note tempted to buy this just cause they have released an sdk (not intested in hacking **** leave that to the more competient ppl in that area :P). But i think kinnect have done a great job because no matter what happens in the gaming market for kinnect every engineer is delighted as the prices for these sensors have dived. Screw it actually probably will buy it just for the thermal camera and ir transmitter two things could really need soon (mind u haven't checked the prices lately for these parts seperatly).

So yes expect to see some more uses of kinnect in the next year would expect some half decent programs to be out by then.

I expect it will as they want to merge their tablet os with the general OS so this could be a viable alternative for them for the desktop option (as noone wants to be close to a desktop screen but if u could do it in the air that's a different matter). So watch this space expecting nice things to come from this .

same, honestly games is the least I imagine using the kinect for, on my line of work (scada systems) this will really prove to be an interesting area to explore

Don't see me using kinect for gaming but could see it being used as a remote to save me from having to get up from bed when watching tv and movies.
