  1. You forgot one part: “buy the device”.
    Looks like the new SDK doesn’t work with the old (xbox) kinect.
    And the Kinect for Windows costs 250USD while the old Kinect for Xbox was 100USD or less.
    If you still want to work with the old Kinect you have to keep using the old SDK beta: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/kinectforwindows/develop/beta.aspx

  2. Humm, I didn’t know that !
    I wonder what the ‘Kinect guys’ think about it !!!
