Kinect Applications Possible on PS3 via API OpenNI Drivers
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 http://openni.org/ 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."
Yes, when Sony PS3 user buy that Kinect motion capturing system it will be very bad for them ...
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.
