Hi Alex and the list,

Indeed :-). I've had a look at your node, great work! I've taken the
liberty of importing your roslaunch file and the udev rules into my node
(while mentioning you of course).
For information for people following the list, here is a summary of
differences between our nodes:
Alex: depth and camera + color on depth + params
Stéphane: depth and camera
Alex: libusb, libfreenect, OpenGL, Glut
Stéphane: libusb, libfreenect
After testing here, we found that the pow(value, 3) correction in
Hector's example is wrong. We will look for the correct value.
By the way, in the current git upstream of libfreenect there is a memory
trash. I made a patch  and sent it to Hector.
