A hacker named Hector is the first to release an open source driver for Microsoft Kinect, collecting a $3000 reward for the achievement.

Hector says he plans to use the money to support the iPhone Dev-Team and other hackers.

Hector has decided to invest this bounty into hacking tools and devices for a group of people he works with closely (e.g. iPhone Dev Team members, Wii hacker team Team Twiizers, and a few others). They don’t have much expendable income to buy tools and devices to hack, and sometimes this hobby can be a bit expensive, this will be a good investment that will allow them to hack more and newer devices.

In addition to the $3k bounty adafruit industries is going to donate $2,000 to the EFF (http://www.eff.org/).

You can download the driver here or take a look below to see it in action.
