Microsoft announced about Kinect - the latest technological creation for game systems

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

Recently, Microsoft talked about Kinect which is its latest technological creation for game systems. It allows users to direct the X-Box with their body movements.

About the Microsoft Kinect - writes, “Kinect recognizes player's movements and voices, and enables users to interact with their existing Xbox 360s and some games without a handheld controller.”

The news portal quotes a statement of Mike Delman which was quoted by ABC News, “You are the controller. You simply step in front of the sensor and Kinect sees you move, hears your voice and recognizes your face.”

Further the news portal writes, “Facial and voice recognition in the Kinect will allow users to log into their Xbox LIVE accounts without pressing a button, and interacting with the system's interface is just a hand's wave away.”

Microsoft Kinect would be available from November 4. Another technological news portal - writes about it, “The technology behind Natal is fairly simple, a TV-mounted camera/microphone bar to sense motion, sound and movement. What's new and ground breaking is the tracking of 3D movement as well as 2D movement. The system is also able to scan users faces and sign them into Xbox live, as well as react to vocal tone and pitch, and process this data in real-time.

The groundbreaking technology was introduced by both Stephen Spielberg and gaming legend Peter Molyneux at E3 in 2009. Both believe the technology has the power to turn games into a true mass entertainment medium. Microsoft is expected to detail the exact release date, pricing and games that Kinect will support later today.”

According to the news portal, “Dubbed Kinect for Xbox 360, the controller-free game device is set to go on sale later this year.” Pricing of the console is yet to be announced. However, it is being recognized as the most appreciating console.
