Impressive tech, but it looks like tech in search of an application, rather than arriving to meet a need.

Used on a console, it needs a decent sized room , solid floor and/or tolerant neighbours. Latency will always be an issue . Apparently they've reduced it from 90ms with processing, to around 60ms for kinect 2.0, but that's still too high for [say] a FPS or anything really, beyond casual games.

They sold over 24m kinect units, but how many bought on a promise that wasn't fulfilled in terms of capability or games? How many would get their money back if they could?

So, looking at that second vid, it doesn't actually look as big as we all first thought. Win.

Kinect was the only thing about eggs box that impressed me because it was so advanced (hence it's use in many scientific applications). This new HD kinect looks even more impressive. The rest of the hardware will become a bottleneck rather quickly as is always the case with consoles. Be interesting to see if it gets some worthy motion capture games.

Struck by this:

Quote:
"Telescreens do not have night vision technology, thus, they cannot surveil in the dark. This is compensated by the fact that telescreens are incredibly sensitive.
And ...

Quote:
"Telescreens, in addition to being surveillance devices, are also the equivalent of televisions (hence the name), regularly broadcasting false news reports about Oceania's military victories, economic production figures, spirited renditions of the national anthem to heighten patriotism, and Two Minutes Hate, which is a two-minute film of Emmanuel Goldstein's wishes for freedom of speech and press, which the citizens have been trained to disagree with. Much of the telescreen programs are given in Newspeak."

With Xbox One's Kinect 2.0 and Fox News we're all set.

It would seem im not the only one worried about Microsoft monitoring everything we do

Privacy advocates: Schaar called Xbox One "monitor"

Sorry for the translate
Will Microsoft be in for more flak like this ?
I can see they are going to face some really big issues with trying to reassure people with the new kinetic.

Microsoft's new Xbox meets the definition of a surveillance device under some Australian laws.

Are they going to be forced to include an option to turn off the always on monitoring ?
