Kinect for Windows v2 Developer Preview Unboxing

I have had the opportunity to write some amazing business software and get paid for it along the way.  As excited as I get about solving my customer’s business challenges with software, I am equally (no, doubly) excited to have the opportunity to play with new technology.  But very rarely to I get to write software for said new technology – AND – do it before it is released to the general populous.

And here we are!  Having just received the Kinect for Windows v2 Developer Preview on 11/27/2013, I am beyond words, and deeply thankful for Microsoft in giving my company, Clearbasis, this amazing opportunity.  It started with an application (not the software one), where I explained my enthusiasm for Kinect and my past experience developing for the Kinect v1.  After lots of waiting and anticipation, I was welcomed on board to the Kinect for Windows v2 Developer Preview Program in September 2013.

Now, two months later, it’s sitting right here in front of me.  I am planning to write several apps for the Kinect v2, which I am keeping confidential for the moment.  But at a minimum, I wanted to share my experience with the Kinect v2 and what better way to share then to start with unboxing!
