As Kinect's first year anniversary comes around later this month, Microsoft has been celebrating the variety of other uses for the motion device outside of gaming, with various companies and businesses downloading the Kinect SDK for creative applications within healthcare, education, art and so on.

Dubbed the 'Kinect Effect', Microsoft will be extending the service with the Kinect for Windows commercial program launching early next year, giving businesses the tools and the opportunity to develop applications to improve their operations. Companies such as Toyota, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and Razorfish have already joined a pilot program for Kinect for Windows.

Kinect has also been used to help autistic children during therapy sessions, utilised to aid the rehabilitation of stroke victims and also put to use in operating theatres in Spain to help doctors navigate MRI and CAT scans. It's hoped that the Kinect for Windows program will led itself to other applications like these. Kinect for Windows rolls out in early 2012. For more on 'The Kinect Effect', click here.
