Microsoft Kinect Hacked to Run on Mac OS X [Video]

Theodore Watson has adapted Hector Martin's libfreenect driver for the Microsoft Kinect to work on Mac OS X.

Most of the code is unchanged but there are some changes to libusb which was needed to get it running ( and a few extra libusb commands ) as well as some tweaking of the transfer sizes. It should be self contained and you shouldn't need to install libusb ( the app links it directly ).

Grab the Source Code: ( Tested on OS X 10.6.3 )​deliver/​kinect/​
