Kinect 2: To Read Lips & Emotions (Maybe Snatch Souls?)November 28, 2011 No Comments
The Kinect by Microsoft is already a sophisticated piece of hardware that translates your body’s movements into actual gameplay. It even understands you when you speak during a few Kinect enabled games and when searching with Bing on the Xbox’s new dashboard which is coming soon.
Now, Eurogameris reporting that Microsoft’s next Kinect (Kinect 2) will be so powerful that it will be able to read lips and emotions by the expressions on your face.
Kinect 2 will be powerful enough to lip read, detect when gamers are angry and even determine which direction they are facing. Kinect 2 is also expected to support the tracking of pitch and volume of player voices and facial characteristics to better measure their emotions.
That truly would be something truly amazing to use and it would certainly help Xbox remain on the top of the console wars. Hopefully we see something like this sooner rather than later.Tags: Consoles, Kinect, Kinect 2, Microsoft, xbox, Xbox 360News
