Submitted by

ptorrone writes "Open source hardware company Adafruit Industries is offering a $1,000 bounty for the first person or group to upload code and examples under an open source license to GitHub for the Xbox Kinect released today. The Kinect sensor outputs video at a frame rate of 30Hz, with the RGB video stream at 32-bit color VGA resolution (640×480 pixels), and the monochrome video stream used for depth sensing at 16-bit QVGA resolution (320×240 pixels with 65,536 levels of sensitivity). The Kinect sensor has a practical ranging limit of 1.2–3.5 metres (3.9–11 ft) distance. The open hardware group would like to see this camera used for education, robotics and fun outside the Xbox."
