I have just finished getting data into Max from the Kinect via OSC using PrimeSenses NITE.
This is using OpenNI,NITE, OSCeleton, and a few other softwares (quite a few actually). The Skeletal tracking of NITE is amazing for those that have not seen it yet.
Mac only tutorial, but I am 100% sure that same could be done for PC.
Let me know what you are doing with it... I will share some examples I have made when I have a little more time to play... Let me know if you find any mistakes...
OpenNI info @ openni.org
Special thanks to Tony Gonçalves at Sensebloom for his help with getting the mac version
