Gives 3d layout of enviroment. Camera , infrared camera and tracking laser. I see nyko aftermarket versions that are half the weight and only 6 inches wide.... Imagine the robotics application of such a cheap hi tech sensor !

Now I'm sure Microsoft would not be thrilled with "misuse" of the official.kinect product...... But a aftermarket like nyko doesn't care. Numerous colleges have had.projects and contests related to the kinect camera accessories.. so I believe this could not only be used as a camera but.other features of the camera sensors like laser for depth perception of an.object and.IR camera to recognize humans and animals sooner without the robot needing complicated software to figure out somthing is "alive" or at least warm blooded Smile
