Adafruit, the team behind the recent "bounty" on hacking Microsoft's new motion-sensing peripheral, have posted an in-depth and incredibly technical guide on how to get the camera doing your bidding rather than Microsoft's.
Be warned when we say it's technical: this is not the kind of thing your average person, comfortable with a console dashboard and Firefox, could pull off. But if you fancy yourself as a bit of a whizz with computer code, have at it! And if you get some cool stuff working, be sure to let us know.
