Wireless Kinect
Anybody here created wireless Kinect?

I have only found Mobile Kinect project at big.cs.bris.ac.uk so far.

And flexihub.com lists ways to make USB wireless.

I'm assuming you're talking about using it for a PC project? Because I don't think you can use a wireless adapter (if there is one) for Kinect 1 or 2 on Xbox 360 or Xbox One, or at least if you can there would likely be some added latency. Plus Microsoft advise against even using anything other than official Kinect extension cables.

Which Kinect do you want to make wireless? Kinect 1 (Xbox 360/Kinect For Windows) or Kinect 2 (Xbox One/Kinect For Windows v2)? If it's Kinect 2 then if it is possible it would require a wireless USB 3 connection. (Assuming there are wireless USB 3 adapters?) If it's just Kinect 1 then it would just require USB 2 and I found this video which might be helpful:

Hi, it's Kinect 1 for Xbox 360 and going to connect to computer and use it for full body scanning. So i think latency is not problem?

Yeah, latency shouldn't be an issue then. Did that video help? If not then maybe these 2 links could help? The first is for making a portable Kinect by connecting it to a Windows tablet (no need for something expensive like a Surface, you could get something like a Linx Vision http://www.linxvision.co.uk/) and adding a battery pack: http://www.livinglifeinfullspectrum.com....n-simpson/

I don't know if a tablet is powerful enough for what you want to do or not (at least a cheap tablet, although Linx Vision uses a quad-core (although I think only single-threaded cores) Intel Atom Cherry Trail CPU running at 1.44GHz and has 2GB RAM), but if it isn't then I think you can probably use the Kinect + tablet method then wirelessly stream the data to your PC using this thing I found called the Coding4Fun Kinect Service: http://kinectservice.codeplex.com/

If neither of those are any help then hopefully someone else might post an answer.
