The final version of the 'Kinect for Windows' should not look like the current version.
Actually, now that i think about it, who really wants an API-controlled set of 3D cameras constantly monitoring everything a user does & says? Who really wants to buy two of them to enable this? I shudder to think of the possible privacy concerns surrounding such HW.
Shouldn't it be obvious to MS what the 'killer app' could be? Simply (& inexpensively) adding multi-touch capabilities to non-touch monitors regardless of OS! Add a microphone or two, tip your hat to MicroSoft & say "thanks for the new speech API"!
In addition, isn't 20grand a little cheap to distribute amongst ten start-ups? Or have i read that rong?
edit: i did read that wrong, it is $20,000 per top-ten startup. My apologies.
