or "Why do we still need other sensors if the Kinect is so awesome?"
Currently I am writing my master thesis using the Kinect and ROS.
Master Thesis: Online Symbol Recognition Through Data Fusion of a 3D- and a Color Camera for an Autonomous RobotRecently I finished my master thesis which was about using the Kinect to do sign recognition. (sign on the right is out of range)

Intrinsic calibration of the Kinect cameras
This page discusses both the precision and the accuracy of the Kinect sensor.

Description: This tutorial cover using the camera_calibration 's cameracalibrator.py node to calibrate a monocular camera with a raw image over ROS.
The ROS/Kinect integration continues to progress quickly thanks to the efforts of the OpenKinect and ROS community.
ROS Contest Projects
The Kinect is an attachment for the Xbox 360 that combines four microphones, a standard RGB camera, a depth camera, and a motorized tilt.
One of my master courses is called autonomous systems. It's a course, where we do stuff with the Pioneer Robot from MobileRobots and ROS (Robot Operating System) from Willow Garage. There are groups with 2 to 4 people.

Thank you very much for the reply. > Shift length in which domain? time?
Während die Veröffentlichung Kinects im November näher rückt, sprechen die Entwickler – offen und unter der Hand – über das neue Bewegungserkennungssystem. Darüber, was es kann, was es nicht kann und was wir von dem System für die Zukunft zu erwarten haben. Microsoft selbst verstärkt seine Marketing-Bemühungen.
