[Solved] Python- How to configure and use Kinect

I have an Xbox 360 + Kinect. It’s great fun to play on it, So, I was wondering if it was possible to use Python to use it and make my own games (and play on PC).
Currently,
I have
1.Drivers from Microsoft and the hardware.(only)
2.No experience with 3d programming.

My Questions
1. Is there good and easy to use module for using Kinect on PC??
2. And any books for the same??

I am using Windows 32 and 64 bit and Python 2.7.

Solution #1:

There is a project called Open Kinect which has many wrappers that you can make use of, including one for Python.

To help you get started, there are a good few code demo’s supplied with their source code, which can also be viewed online here.

Once you’ve got to grips with making use of the information the Kinect is sending back to you, you can try the popular pygame to base a game around whatever it is you’re trying to do.
