Only for use outside the US?
Wouldn't this be illegal in the US and the UK due to the DMCA and the UKs "aiding and abetting copyright infringement" law (or whatever the bollocks is called)?
Or have Microsoft decided they are not going to “continue to make advances in these types of safeguards and work closely with law enforcement and product safety groups to keep Kinect tamper-resistant.”?
Personally I wish people would stop hacking systems by companies who are so litigious and anti-innovation. Why the hell are people paying MS money for a product when Microsoft may later use it to pay lawyers to sue them? Can't someone develop this kind of thing using a cheapo generic "3D" camera instead?
