    Really excited to see what you are able to use from the new kinect. Thanks for compiling these articles. I searched for two days after the announcement to see if they would release a pc version. :P Sad to see that the depth sensor is not 1080 and is square. Would have been nice to actually preform motions with more than three step capture area.

      Glad you like it.

      The IR/depth camera does seem to have a wider FOV lens than the current gen Kinect both horizontal and vertical.

      So most likely the capture area will be both wider and also start closer to the sensor.
