The kinect is made for the xbox but aswell as the computer, to get it to work simply plug it in and let windows download the correct software and drivers. If it does not install you then need to download the drivers at windows.com.

The kinect for the computer come's with a SDK for scripting code for small games or applications.

I seen someone script a automated turret with it loaded with a nerf gun lol.

FF90 is right, even so that the Kinect for the PC differs somewhat from the xBox Kinect. If you want to try to connect the Xbox Kinect to your computer, check on here for the requirements and software. To get a adpater for the Xbox to PC check on here. Do not expect to find very many games that will support this yet, and most of the software is still custom.Hope this helps, good luck.

No damage can occur from plugging the Kinect in to your computer, but unless you have the necessary drivers installed, you won't be able to do much.

Please visit OpenNI for information about an open source Kinect platform.

The book Making Things See is a very good resource for getting started with hacking the Kinect.

I personally have been able to write a few small programs to use the functionality of the Kinect to perform other tasks on the computer.
