Can I develop Kinect apps on Mac Hardware? (Xamarin, Parallels, Virtual box?) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have Xamarin installed on OSX and Windows 10 on a MacBook pro.

    Can I use a Kinect somehow with this setup?  

    Parallels only supports DirectX 10 at the moment, so I think that Virtualization platform is a no-go.  Are there other options? Dual boot?

  • Bootcamp with Windows 8/8.1/10 will work without a problem, as you suspect virtualization won't work.

    Note that you do require a MacBook Pro with Intel or Renesas USB3 chipset, unfortunately Apple doesn't usually post this kind of info on their website so you may have to try it out or hunt for the information.
