README.md

Horribly hacky first take at a Kinect Camera driver. Does RGB and Depth.

main.c implements a simple OpenGL visualization. Hopefully it should be mostly self-explanatory... You pretty much just open the USB device, call cams_init(dev, depthimg, rgbimg), and your depthimg and rgbimg callbacks get called as libusb processes events.

TODO

  • TONS of cleanup. I mean LOTS.
  • Determine exactly what the inits do
  • Bayer to RGB conversion that doesn't suck
  • Integrate support for the servo and accelerometer (which have already been reverse engineered)

BIG TODO: audio.

The audio chip (the Marvell) requires firmware and more init and does a TON of stuff including the crypto authentication to prove that it is an original Kinect and not a clone. Who knows what this thing does to the incoming audio. This should be interesting to look at.

OSX Install

port install cmake
cmake .
