Kinect For Facebook (and more) with Motion Nexus
Today's Kinect and Kinect for Windows SDK commercial project is one that when I saw it on 123Kinect I had to reach out to them and confirm that it was real and actually used the Kinect for Windows SDK.
"…we have deliberately made the commitment focus solely on the Kinect for Windows SDK with the goal of boosting development for the Kinect for Windows SDK and stimulating the market adoption/penetration of the Kinect for Windows sensor. The goal is providing a platform that helps developers make the transition from "hacks" to commercially viable applications/games. After having created one of the first, if not the first, commercial Kinect applications for Children's Hospital Colorado (a cloud-based at home physical therapy tele-health solution using the Kinect), we realized that only commercially viable Kinect applications (not hacks) can energize the market in ways that viable businesses can be created around the immense amount of potential opportunities that the Kinect created, so we created Motion Nexus. …"
The Motion Nexus plugin provides the interface between the Kinect camera and the application. It abstracts camera vendor specific details and operating system details from the application, enabling the developer to focus on developing innovative and exciting applications.
