Microsoft using Xbox Kinects for keynote presentations; Kinect SDK tomorrow?

Tipped off by Chris Walsh, we noticed a few Kinect sensors on stage for the MIX11 keynote talks. Three of them can be seen in the above photo and we're told that there are five in total (we think they're in front, near a speaker).

How are these Kinects being used? We're not too sure, but it's kind of neat knowing that these things have like a billion uses. Oh and we hear from WPSauce (Rahul Mathur) that the Kinect SDK gets released tomorrow. Stay tuned for more on that as it happens.

Edit: There's actually six Kinects, maybe even seven Seems Microsoft has some big Kinect news for tomorrow.
