    Will you guys have a Unity Kinect 2 plugin available? There is a free one from RF Solutions in the Unity Asset Store. Do you recommend?

    Looking forward to applying all these radical gestures I've been thinking of into a really cool application!

    Hi Dallas Unity devs!

    I wanted to make sure everyone knows that the Kinect SDK will now include a plugin for Unity3D, so get pumped and bring your projects/ideas using Kinect to the event!

    Spread the word, invite friends, coworkers, family, so that we can show the Kinect team what Dallas is all about!
