RumorTT: Offical Kinect SDK for PC in the works from Microsoft

Your Minority Report PC could be a reality sooner than you think

While all kinds of neat PC-born hacks for the Kinect are all over the place, Microsoft has kept fairly quiet on official PC support for the device with CEO Steve Ballmer only stating that PC compatibility will come "at the right time." Reports are now stirring that the time may be soon upon us as WinRumors is stating that Microsoft currently has a Kinect SDK and driver set in the works.

The SDK, or software development kit, would give developers the tools they need to bring Kinect-based software to the PC platform. Details past this are pretty sketchy, with only a vague "in the coming months" as a possible release time and another rumbling of Kinect support in Windows 8. With the current popularity of the Kinect, as shown by Microsoft outselling their projected figures by 3 million units, it would make sense to strike while the iron is hot.
