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.
