Days away from its official release and the Kinect for Xbox One is already earning praise...
The new Kinect is 10 times as accurate as its predecessor. A high-def camera and an infrared sensor capture a body’s movements—right down to the fingertips—in any light. Algorithms interpret the data to map skeletal and muscular movement, estimate heart rate, and track emotions. Developers will be able to use that data to code games that play off a gamer’s every tick, blink, or gasp.
