Microsoft has released 22 pieces of sample code for Kinect for Windows under an open source license, to encourage feedback and and faster updates.

"We're releasing all the samples under an Apache 2.0 license so that you can take the code and reuse, remix, etc. Also, we're using a Git repository so it's easy clone and fork if you want," said the blog post, authored by "Kinect Ninja" Ben Lower.

The samples are available on Codeplex in C#, C++, and Visual Basic.
