Microsoft’s entry into the motion sensing industry has come to the UK!
On Monday 8th November, Kinect was launched.
What is Kinect?
Kinect is just one peice of technology costing about £129.99 . The best thing is that you only need to buy the camera to play the games. You get ‘Kinect Adventures’ with the camera, so that gets you started quickly.
How does it work?
Kinect is a motion sensor device that tracks your body’s movements. No controller needed. The Kinect sensor contains an RGB camera and a depth sensor to track your movement. It measures the positioning of 48 key joints in your anatomy and by tracking the movements of these joints, it can work out exactly what position your body is in. What’s more, it sees in 3D by overlaying the input from the RGB camera with the depth sensor.
