What could you build with the XBox Kinect? Well we want to know!

Connect your Kinect to your PC and build an application using your favorite .NET language.

Kinect for Developers is a 2-day workshop for developers, artists and technicians interested in Kinect hacking or 3D scanning. This hands on workshop will teach you the basics of programming for Kinect and the potentials for developing on video and depth sensor cameras. Expect live demonstrations, presentations, food, and lots of hacking. You can come pitch your idea, form a team, build your application over the weekend and compete for awesome prizes.

Additionally, 2-weeks after the workshop, come back for a fast-pitch to AT&T for a chance to collaborate with the AT&T Foundry. During this 2-week break, developers can continue to work in teams or work on their own Kinect applications. Deadline for submitting your application to fast-pitch to the Foundry is February 8th.

Kinect for Developers is brought to you by Microsoft, AT&T Foundry and Gravity Center.

Tentative Schedule: On Saturday we will focus on getting you up to speed on developing for the Kinect with a series of presentations and hands on labs. On Sunday we will break up into teams and you will have a chance to build an application with the Kinect where help will be available just in case. At the end of the day we will demo what we have worked on. Catered Lunch and snacks will be provided both days.
