The technology recognizes open and closed hand gestures
Microsoft Research posted a YouTube video that shows off new
, which may be available in time for the new Xbox console.
The video, which features Microsoft researcher Cem Keskin, shows how "Kinect 2.0" captures movement of the hands more accurately than current Kinect hardware/software, and can even be used to maneuver Windows 8 apps.
Keskin's demonstration shows how Kinect 2.0 can recognize open and closed hand gestures, which allows him to draw in Windows 8 apps like Fresh Paint and navigate the Bing Maps app.
He is able to draw when his fists are closed, and if he wants to select an app in Windows 8, he simply open and closes his hand over the desired app.
Some speculate that the new Kinect could make its way out around the release of the
new Xbox console
. The new Xbox, which is expected to make an appearance at E3 this year, features specs like a
processor with x64 architecture and eight cores running at 1.6 GHz;
a custom D3D 11.1 class unit GPU running at 800 MHz
8 GB of DDR3 RAM and 32 MB of fast embedded SRAM
