kinect depth value

I know that each pixel in the depth image is supposed to relate to the distance

of that part of the scene, but no unit ( not [mm] ).

How do we translate from these value to a distance measurement in some kind of

useful units like [mm]?

Can you tell me the changable fomula?

The openni_camera wiki page describes how to interpret the data from each topic published by the camera. Specifically:

depth/image_raw (sensor_msgs/Image)
    Raw image from device. Contains uint16 depths in mm.
