+ - Microsoft Says Kinect Left Open By Design->

Submitted by kai_hiwatari
kai_hiwatari (1642285) writes "With new cool hacks for Kinect coming up every other day, Microsoft has taken an u-turn from their earlier decision. Around two week ago when Adafruit announced a bounty for developing an open-source driver for the Kinect, Microsoft made it clear that they condone it.
Now Microsoft seem to have realized the potential of their device and has made an u-turn. Alex Kipman, Xbox Director of Incubation, now says that they left the Kinect open by design.
This is what Alex Kipman said:
"What has happened is someone wrote an open-source driver for PCs that essentially opens the USB connection, which we didn’t protect, by design, and reads the inputs from the sensor.""
