Microsoft today released the final Kinect SDK 2.0, which you can download now for free directly from Microsoft.com. The launch means developers can now finalize their apps for the Kinect v2 sensors and begin to commercial deploy them.
As such, Microsoft has now started accepting Kinect apps in the Windows Store. Developers have been begging the company for a while now, and Redmond has finally delivered on this “frequent request.”
To show off some Windows apps featuring gesture control, body tracking, and object recognition, Microsoft ensured some of its partners have already added their work to the Windows Store. These include Kinect Evolution (a Microsoft app that shows off Kinect for Windows v2 technology), YAKiT (a character animation app from the developers at Freak n’ Genius), and 3D Builder (an app for scanning a person or object, turning it into a 3D model, and 3D printing that model).
