        I know that our organization has already developed some interest 
in the new kinect and its potential uses.  We, and I think many others in 
the ROS-Industrial community, would be interested in seeing this 
capability developed.  If it is as well received as its predecessor, then 
it could be very exciting.

If you saw the subject line and got excited that a Microsoft kinect[1] 
driver was available for ROS, I apologize.  I am wondering if anybody is 
working on a driver.  The best effort I can find is libfreenect2[2].  All 
other efforts I have seen rely on a bridging the kinect through a windows 
PC.  It would be nice to have a native driver written for ROS/Ubuntu.  I?d 
be interested to hear from anyone that is current working on a driver, or 
would be interested in supporting the development of one.
Thanks in advance,
