Kinect SDK 1.7 with Interactions and Fusion is posted

Get it here.

This release is very exciting, because it includes the amazing Kinect Fusion feature, which enables high-resolution 3D capture in realtime:

Also, you get gesture recognition out of the box:

I can hardly wait to hook up the Kinect sensor to my Surface Pro and walk around my living room, scanning the environment into a 3D model.
