Easiest & Fastest way to save Kinect depth and image data

After searching a lot to quickly get range and intensity data I thought of documenting the best way so that other people save their precious time! 

I ended up using Mobile Robotics Programming Toolkit(MRPT). Please goto this page for installation instructions:
I used the option of "installation from the repositories" instead of compiling from source. Its fast and easy this way.

Once that is done,
Download the code from here: Code
Download the cmake file from here: CMakeFile

cmake .
sudo ./kinect_view
