Doctors, scientists, and developers have done some amazing things with the Kinect but have been limited to the official software toolkit. Microsoft has made parts of the source code freely available, offering face tracking, depth of field, and other features for the PC version of Kinect.

Microsoft spokesman Ben Lower posted a link to 22 samples in coding languages C#, C++, and Visual Basic. You can find it all on CodePlex.

In addition, Microsoft is starting a Kinect for Windows blog for developers that "will focus on going behind the scenes with the K4W engineering team and will go deeper on the technology and APIs, share tips & tricks, and provide other tidbits of information relevant to those building K4W applications."

Kinect may have a bright future, as the code becomes more accessible to various industries and game developers.
