I'm also looking forward to any news regarding the Kinect 2 with Vuo. As it currently stands any support for Kinect 2 under OSX will likely only be 3rd Party or Open Source as the Dev Program Kit will only initially be available to Windows users. They have 500 spots open for anyone willing to pay the $399 Program Signup fee.

Yesterday one of the libfreenect2 developers posted this: "I managed to decode the IR data into depth and ir images." They still have a lot more work to do before there are stable drivers, but it's great to see some material progress.
