While last week's Connect(); event was mostly about Visual Studio, ASP vNext, Azure, etc. Ben Lower snuck in with a 11 minute intro to the Kinect for Windows v2. If you're looking for a quick intro to the device and what you can do with it, this is a great video for you...
The Kinect debuted as an accessory for Xbox, but now it's helping developers create new types of experiences beyond the living room. This video introduces the new Kinect v2 sensor and its capabilities. We use a sample application called "Kinect Evolution" to explain and demonstrate the platform's data sources (Depth, Infrared, Color, Audio, and Body).
