Kinect - a Multimedia Device for Microsoft Future

Kinect is a "controller-free gaming and entertainment experience" by Microsoft for the Xbox 360 video game platform. Based around a webcam-style add-on peripheral for the Xbox 360 console, it enables users to control and interact with the Xbox 360 without the need to touch a game controller, through a natural user interface using gestures and spoken commands.

Kinect brings
  • tracking your body with full depth mapping for 3D motion sensing
  • responds to voice commands for voice control
  • a standard video camera for video chat
together for the first time. It’s natural user interface in its infancy. It integrates state of art technologies of voice recognition, face recognition, video conference, possible spatial data processing, etc.
