So some other sites have info on their time with the XBONE kinect going up right now (specifically Sessler at Rev3) and it seems like the new kinect is significantly better at Depth of Field and detecting slight motions. If it comes out and is significantly better than the original, would you be willing to give it a chance with, say, another steel battalion? or is it still just a dumb piece of tech for dancing games?
Kinect 2.0 seems way better than current one
I can't remember where I heard it earlier, maybe it was during the hardware talk, but I heard it said that this newer Kinect unit doesn't require as large a space to be used properly.
I'm sure it won't be perfect, but what fancy tech from any company is? We'll have to wait and see, and a lot of us will considering the thing is bundled by default with the Xbox.
@rvone: Part of me thinks it's kind of creepy. Part of me thinks its Gene Rodenberry's Star Trek dream come to life. Only time will tell if it's the dystopian science fiction of 1984 or not.
I agree. The range of possible applications for this technology from a user perspective is, of course, something to be quite enthusiastic about--if not with this generation of Kinect, then with the next. The flip side is, basically, the equally impressive range of surveillance possibilities that are created through having consumers bring this technology into their homes.
