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).

If you want to try this out for yourself, it only currently works with OS X 10.6.3 and not the latest OS release.

Awesome progress!
