Official Kinect drivers are released

If you’re like me, you’ve been itching to get under the hood of Kinect. The prospect of a true, Minority Report-like interface is too alluring to resist. 

Tom Cruise manipulates the user interface in Steven Spielberg’s 'Minority Report'.

Rejoice, for the moment is at hand: PrimeSense, the company behind the Kinect 3D technology, has just released the drivers.

To give you a hint of what’s possible, here’s a randomly chosen video from Kinect Hacks.
