    @Omar: Not that I'm aware of... As far as I've seen and read, the Kinect for Windows device and Kinect for Windows SDK is targeted at Windows based development and deployment...

    I have an MSDN Premium account, I purchased two units: one with the xbox and another without.  Do I need to buy this as well?

    thanks,

    @JohnnyCat: It depends on how you're using it... In the end, probably...

    Here's a snip from;

    Although we encourage all developers to understand and take advantage of the additional features and updates available with the new Kinect for Windows hardware and accompanying software, those developers using our SDK and the Kinect for Xbox 360 hardware may continue to use these in their development activities if they wish. However, non-commercial deployments using Kinect for Xbox 360 that were allowed using the beta SDK are not permitted with the newly released software. Non-commercial deployments using the new runtime and SDK will require the fully tested and supported Kinect for Windows hardware and software platform, just as commercial deployments do. Existing non-commercial deployments using our beta SDK may continue using the beta and the Kinect for Xbox 360 hardware; to accommodate this, we are extending the beta license for three more years, to June 16, 2016.

    Will there be a integration with the coming Windows Media Center 8 (voice an gesture control)?

    So Media Center 8 will be a real iTV killer..

    I am university student and IEEE student member from Sri Lanka.We are doing Sign language to voice converter using Kinect for Final year Project.How should we apply for the academic pricing? and as we are students and since we don't have any sponsor it is bit difficult us to pay such amount of money. Is there any way to get on of it for the Project. Please don't get this as a silly comment. Thank You

    @Asanka Dissanayake: @JAN GER: A better place to ask those questions is probably in the Kinect Forums, https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/kinectsdk/threads.

    Those forums are more closely watched by the Kinect teams than are comments here...
