Kinect Info Box – your first Kinect application

Let's start developing our first application. We will call this application Kinect Info Box. To start development, the first thing we are going to build is an application that reads the device information from a Kinect sensor. The Info Box application is self-explanatory. The following screenshot shows a running state of the application, which shows the basic device information such as Connection ID, Device ID, and Status.
