Kinect v2 is the Kinect for Windows device, that is similar to the Kinect that ships with Xbox One. This post is about this device and not the Kinect that you get with Xbox One. If you bought an Xbox One, you need to buy a Kinect Adapter for Windows to be able to connect that Kinect to your computer.

My notes on using and programming this device:

Have fun with your Kinect v2! 😊

Tried with: Visual Studio 2013 and Windows 10 x64
