Subject: [PATCH 0/2] Add a GSPCA subdriver for the Microsoft Kinect sensor
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Thursday 7th April 2011 15:45:50 UTC (over 5 years ago)
Hi,

This patchset adds support for using the Kinect[1] sensor device as a 
regular Webcam or as a IR camera.
[1] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinect

The first patch adds a new Y10B pixelformat used to expose the raw IR 
data the sensor can provide, the second patch adds a gspca subdriver for 
the Kinect sensor.

There was some positive feedback about calling the new format Y10B from 
Hans Verkuil, Mauro Carvalho Chehab and Guennadi Liakhovetski.

Any comment is appreciated.

Thanks,
   Antonio
