That's a picture of Kinect Bundled with an Xbox. I see no stand alone Kinect Sensors. Why would I buy a full system just to get Kinect, when I already have an Xbox. Lots of places are sold out of just the Kinect Sensor. Gamestop just added it back on their site, and my nearest Gamestop was sold out for a few days. MS wants to sell 5 million by years end, so they are going to constantly ship them, but in some places it is sold out.

Folks keep in mind this is only a driver.
So its the raw input data you then need to make software the can progress and assign that data to actions on the pc.

umm no "open sourcerefers to a program in which the source code is available to the general public for use and/or modification from its original design free of charge, i.e., open. Open source code is typically created as a collaborative effort in which programmers improve upon the code and share the changes within the community. Open source sprouted in the technological community as a response to proprietary software owned by corporations." source http://www.webopedia.com/TE... hey didn't know I could post links from my PS3.
