Still looking to convince gamers of the Xbox One Kinect's potential, Microsoft released two new videos on its TechNet Blog about the challenges that were overcome in its making.
Kareem Choudhry, Kinect's development manager, explains how "the full capability of Microsoft as a company comes together" to combine computer vision, machine learning, facial recognition and speech recognition together into the Kinect.
"The first version was really about understanding gross human motion. We have true human understanding here and fidelity of expression," explains Choudhry, discussing the Kinect's motion sensor, which is accurate to the speed of light.
The video also focuses on the Kinect's heart rate monitor, which reads eye movement and can detect a person's pulse through their face. Also looked at in this second video is Kinect's 3D camera, which has IR vision that can see in the dark.
