Well, OK, sort of, but it's progress nonetheless.

Developer Theo Watson has adapted the open-source libfreenect (which was developed by Hector Martin) so that the hands-free controller now works on Mac OS X - well, more accurately, the depth camera and the RGB camera work, you can't play games on it ... yet).

Awesome progress!
