Open-Source Kinect coming on market. Answered

Remember Adafruit's bounty for cracking the Kinect?

They might have been a bit hasty paying out for the hacks, since the Israeli developers of the technology within the Kinect have decided to sell similar devices themselves, called PrimeSensor, and release their code on an open license.

One of the first licensees has been computer maker Asus which has paired the PrimeSensor with two devices that stream data from a PC to a TV via wireless. This lets owners get at the media on that PC using gestures rather than a mouse.

Lithium Rain will be delighted...
