Kinect 2 Can Read Your Lip And Mind

Kinect 2 Can Read Your Lip And Mind

Microsoft’s next iteration of its motion sensor Kinect will be so powerful, so intelligent, that it’ll be able to read you lip and mind.

The report comes to us per Eurogamer, citing a development source claiming Kinect will come bundled with Xbox 720. The whole idea is that Kinect 2 will offer improved motion sensing and voice recognition, the website was told.

In fact, according to the source, Kinect 2 will be so powerful it will enable games to lip read, detect when players are angry, and determine in which direction they are facing. It can follow the pitch and volume of player voices and facial characteristics to determine different emotional contingencies.

All of this is achieved by getting rid of Kinect console connection via USB, and increasing the bandwidth between the devices which allows for increased CCD size from 320×240 pixels.

“It can be cabled straight through on any number of technologies that just take phenomenally high res data straight to the main processor and straight to the main RAM and ask, what do you want to do with it?” said the source.

Talk of a new Xbox console has been flowing incessantly in recent times, with the latest being a plan by MS to release two versions of the impending console.

This is no longer smoke; fire is all over the place. Get ready for Microsoft’s next console, folks.
