Kinect Night

The Kinect is a motion sensing input device originally created for the XBox gaming system, and has seen widespread use among hackers due to its powerful sensors.

With the launch of Microsoft's next generation console comes the acclaimed Version 2 Kinect, with even more capabilities. A Windows development kit will be released this summer.

Preview the Kinect with us, as we'll be demonstrating one of these new devices at the Makerbar. Learn about what it can do, and what the new library will provide to developers and hackers. Afterwards we'll have a hands-on session so you can explore what the Kinect can do.

7:00pm – Hang-out, see some initial demos
7:45pm – Presentation about capabilities
8:00pm - Kinect demos
8:30pm - Hands on experience

    This will be the same Kinect as the one released for the XBox One (minus the logo). Being Microsoft, there are some requirements until it's released and people hack it:

    - Windows 8
    - USB3 port
    - One of the preview v2Kinect SDKs, unless it's launched before this meetup.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
