Ken Moore's concept

High quality typography and layout (says "we're serious") with distinctive visual of the Kinect hardware.

Version 1 - stacked layout is more legible in narrow placements

Version 2 - horizontal layout has nice visual balance, but needs more width for legibility

Jonathan Hall's concept

Unfortunately, use of the "Kinect" name will likely be seen as trademark infringement. Microsoft registered "Kinect" as a word mark (meaning: a claim to use of the word itself, independent of how it appears) on goods and services related to "computer software, computer hardware, and computer peripherals." (See the USPTO registration dated 10/29/2009: http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/showfield?f=doc&state=4007:k6ntdc.2.1 )

Tedious as it may be, we should consider alternatives. I propose an obvious adjustment--"OpenKinetic"--but there may well be better options out there. Below is my concept rendering both "OpenKinect" and "OpenKinetic" with simple typography, horizontal two-color layout, and a bug: http://clients.junketdesign.com/openkinect/logos/logo_openkinect-01.png

Carlos Asmat's logo concept

Below you can find my concept of the OpenKinect Logo. Of course, the name could be changed in order to avoid copyright infringements as long as the second word still starts with a "K".
