    Kinect Applications Possible on PS3 via API OpenNI Drivers

    Sponsored Links
    Just over a month ago Adafruit Industries offered and paid a bounty for an Open Kinect Driver, and today German site VideoGamesZone.de (linked above) reports that running homebrew Kinect applications may soon be possible on PS3 via OtherOS and API [Register or Login to view links] drivers.

    To quote, roughly translated: "Kinect for Xbox 360 might also operate on the PlayStation 3. Thanks to recent API OpenNI Drivers for Windows and Linux could allow PS3 consoles with older firmware with the OtherOS function also Kinect Underground.

    The drivers allow access to all Kinect functions. Both the depth sensor and the audio and video capabilities of Kinect would theoretically available on the PlayStation 3.

    So far, we have some Kinect videos from amateur hobbyists found, do the fun things with Kinect on the PC. Below are videos of a cool Minority Report-application and a player to come out with invisible Kinect makes.

    A video to a Kinect application on the PlayStation 3 we have not found, yet."

    The PS3 has its own libusbd. I think its only a matter of time before the driver is ported to the PS3 library and homebrew applications will be able to use Kinect running under GameOS.

    hahaha... that would be the greatest slap to the face to Microsoft! Be cool if some homebrew programs would be coded for it.

    hey, last time i checked there are pc drivers also. So you ever thought some of us have actually more than one system or intention of using it for more than just the xbox? I already have the kinect and being able to use it on more than one device is a plus.

    this is very nice information... and next step would be playing Xbox games on PS3... but difference in hardware structure probably won't allow that...
