Welcome to the OpenKinect project


OpenKinect is a open community of people interested in making use of the amazing Xbox Kinect hardware with our PCs and other devices. We are working on free, open source libraries that will enable the Kinect to be used with Windows, Linux, and Mac.

Some general information about how kinect works can be found in this document.
