If you are a fan of Microsoft Kinect, and you want to use Kinect on your PC, you’ll be pleased to know that Kinect for Windows has been announced.
Kinect for Windows v2 sensor and software developer kit for it were announced recently, and the release of SDK will allow developers to create all sorts of Windows Store app with Kinect support. The sensor itself has been improved and it comes with enhanced fidelity, video definition, field of view, depth perception, and skeletal tracking. In addition, the device has better overall precision, improved responsiveness as well as support for 1080p HD video, so you’ll be able to stand closer to the sensor, and you won’t be using as much room space as with previous model.
Kinect for Windows v2 sounds like an improvement, and with the release of SDK, we’re hoping to see all sorts of interesting apps. As for the release, we’re expecting to see this device available this summer.
