Microsoft has released the latest version of Kinect for Windows SDK – v1.7 with cool features for developers.
The key features introduced are:
- Kinect Interactions – Kinect Interactions are designed to let users intuitively do things like press their hand forward a few inches to push a button, or close their hands to “grip and pan” as seen here. Now you can untether yourself and move around a conference room naturally.
- Kinect Fusion – a tool included in Kinect for Windows SDK 1.7, can create highly accurate
3-D renderings of people and objects in real time.

While searching for Third Party alternative software’s for bringing back windows start menu feel on Windows 8, I came across few interesting tools – and I introduced them in my earlier blog posts – Stardock’s Start8 (licensed version), Classic Shell, Power8 were those.

Today I just found another cool alternative that you can try for free – StartW8 – is developed by Area Guard. You can install and use the software free of cost. It gives you start menu closer to the appearance of Windows 8 aero look and feel.
