See more about NI MATE
http://www.ni-mate.com/

NI Mate is software that imports Kinect motion capture data in real-time into 3D apps and they've announced that Blender is the first application that they're supporting. ... It should be really interesting to see what people start doing with this new capability in Blender.

NI Mate is now available in open beta for both Windows and Mac OS X (Linux support is coming soon). You can register to participate in the beta and download all of the necessary software at www.ni-mate.com.
