I am very interested in the new sensor, and have one of the new ones from the Xbox One.
Can anyone comment on getting the Kinect from the Xbox One up and running for experimenting with it whether this alpha program is really the best way to go?

On the contrary LEAP, that is also a motion controller/sensor though of a different design/make etc and cannot be a replacement for ASUS or Prime Sense, they did make lot of publicity of their product.

Has anyone heard, are they no longer selling cameras? I need the Carmine 1.09 for my boxing robot that I hope to bring to market in the next few months.
