Gives 3d layout of enviroment. Camera , infrared camera and tracking laser. I see nyko aftermarket versions that are half the weight and only 6 inches wide.... Imagine the robotics application of such a cheap hi tech sensor !

i use KINECT alot in my robot projects,one using ROS drivers but LINUX SYSTEM ,another is the LEAF AI ROBOT project with ROBOREALM ,it has the KINECT MODULE FOR IT

roborealm kinect
very easy to add it to roborealm software
to add it to LEAF project

roborealm leaf
soon Steven (CREATOR) at ROBOREALM is making a interface for EZ BOARD
so both or all 3 can be use and lot more modules,filters,controls,navigation and lot more

@jstarne
NYKO doesnt make KINECT ,only ZOOM A range reduction lens attachment for KINECT

ASLO if looking to buy KINECT look for a fairly new model,since older models the firmware wont work with the KINECT drivers,i have 5 of them and had to send 2 back because of the firmware ,worked great on the XBOX SYSTEM but not with the drivers

ALSO MICROSOFT has made a SDK for the KINECT ,so if really good in programming
you can make a code and DLL for it
