Can Xbox One Kinect work for PC ?

The Xbox One Kinect isn't officially set up to run on a PC, but a group of intrepid hackers have figured out the exact kind of tweaking the hardware needs in order to do so.

Hacker and developer Chris Gallizzi, who last fall was working to get the Xbox One controller running with Windows 7, has cracked the code to getting the Kinect hooked up to the PC. The video above shows Gallizzi with fellow developer Jesse Aragon demonstrating their workaround, which requires a custom cable. The pair plan to release the cable at retail through their company, gaming accessory maker Hyperkin Inc.

Microsoft released a dedicated PC version of the new Kinect's software development kit earlier this week. You can grab it for $199.

Arent they including Kinect in Windows 9? I think MS is making a push to make the OS uniform across all platforms: X1, phone, tablet and pc.

I guess this is the guy helping make it happen.

Certainly exciting news for developers :)

Just makes me think of the amzing apps which can exist and how Microsoft has completely lost the opportunity :/
