Unboxing the Kinect for Windows v2 Device

Today's post is for those of you who are looking at the Kinect for Windows v2 device, but haven't pulled the trigger yet. James Ashley shares the unboxing of his just received device...

Kinect v2 Final Hardware


The final Kinect hardware arrived at my front door this morning.  I’ve been playing with preview hardware for the past half year – and working on a book on programming it as various versions of the SDK were dropped on a private list – but this did not dampen my excitement over seeing the final product.


The sensor itself looks pretty much the same as the the preview hardware – and as far as I know the internal components are identical.  The cosmetic differences include an embossed metal “Kinect” on the top of the sensor and the absence of the razzmatazz stickers – which I believe were simply meant to cover up Xbox One branding.
