Microsoft envisions a grande vision for the future of Kinect
The Kinect sensor might not be all its cracked up to be on the Xbox One — hence Microsoft’s decision to add a
SKU for the console without the camera peripheral for $100 less
— but that isn’t stopping the Redmond, Washington-based company from trying again with the PC market.
Early in June, we told you that Microsoft had
opened up pre-orders to developers
, with an estimated shipping date in July. Microsoft has held true to its word, and the product page for the Kinect for Windows v2 Sensor shows that it will ship on July 15.
Developers are encouraged to build apps for the Kinect sensor that will grace the Windows Store. So that means that we should start seeing apps and games at least by early next year for Windows users.
Microsoft’s “end game” with Kinect is to provide a “future where humans and technology can interact more seamlessly—in the living room, on their PCs, and beyond.”
Microsoft’s Kinect for Windows v2 Sensor is priced at $199.

I sure hope you aren't rocking an Android phone utilizing Google services.
Otherwise your privacy concerns are laughable.

Nope. But I'm curious to know why one device violating my privacy makes it okay for another to do the same. Also, what useful function could this device provide when you're already sitting 2 feet away with your hands on the controls? A decent webcam costs a fraction of the price, and a decent headset would give better functionality for voice. So why would I want to point this thing at myself, much less add the privacy concerns?

My Android phone isn't mounted on the wall in my bedroom or living room!
Just because the NSA and corporations are doing everything they can to erode our personal privacy DOES NOT mean I am just going to give them the keys to my home!
