    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.

    Im not sure i like the idea of electronics knowing so many details, it seems like we are one step closer to Nineteen Eighty-Four and telescreens

    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.

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

    Privacy advocates: Schaar called Xbox One "monitor"

    Sorry for the translate :blah:
    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.
