hmmm maybe i misunderstand this, but isnt this saying softkinetics SDK, which is free, will be bundled by intel with THEIR perceptual computing SDK... which is free... :confused:

And since it doesnt mention anything else that the perceptual computing SDK contains... it sounds as if all intel did is rename the softkinetics SDK?

sounds like 99% marketing and 1% actual news :D
