Came across this https://github.com/nemein/Qt_AirCursor not a lot there yet but might be a nice fit with qOrbiter if/when it is released....

I've thought about using a Kinect as an input device for an HTPC system as soon as I heard that an open source driver was developed, shortly after the device's release. I'm taking a wait-see attitude as I have yet to hear about any meaningful progress towards using it as an input device in Linux.
See my User page on the LinuxMCE Wiki for a description of my system configuration (click the little globe under my profile pic).
