The team of Kinect for Windows has recently announced that there will be new Kinect hardware especially designed for Windows. Users will be able to connect it to their PCs to add real-time, 3D tracking to programs, games as well as research projects. The new firmware will also include a new ‘Near Mode’ feature that allows the camera to see objects 50 centimeters in front of the device.

The SDK (Software Development Kit) will allow developers add the Kinect to nearly any hardware. Furthermore, Microsoft has announced its new project, the Kinect Accelerator, which will give 10 companies $20,000 each as an investment for ideas using the Kinect.
