Kinect drivers are designed to integrate seamlessly with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 (32-bit only) and Linux Ubuntu 10.10 and later (x86 and x64). Binaries and the additional resources can be downloaded for free via OpenNI. This project is supported by PrimeSense, Willow Garage and Side-kick.

“OpenNI (Open Natural Interaction) is a multi-language, cross-platform framework that defines APIs for writing applications utilizing Natural Interaction. OpenNI APIs are composed of a set of interfaces for writing NI applications.

“The main purpose of OpenNI is to form a standard API that enables communication with both: vision and audio sensors, and vision and audio perception middleware,” said on OpenNI website.
