Microsoft locked Kinect Technology to stop hackers from hacking into the system, and making it available publicly. But, this hasn’t stopped Hector Martin, the guy who just hacked Microsoft Kinect and has just made it open source. And according to him, this was comparatively easy. You Sir!, are Good.
What does that necessarily means, it means, you don’t need Xbox 360 for Kinect to Work, as the guy has made it work under Linux, with a completely open source driver that is available for download from Hector’s Git Page.
You can watch the demo of the Kinect Open Source Driver in action in this Youtube video below.
That’s pretty damn good. I am out of words, shoot.
