Microsoft forms new team to deliver "top-secret", "premium Kinect-powered experiences"

oxm.co.uk: "A new team is forming in Microsoft's entertainment division with a specific purpose: to push the envelope of today's and tomorrow's technology as we explore new ideas from the ground floor. " reads an ad for a software development engineer. "It begins with veterans from Xbox 360, Xbox LIVE, and Kinect. But we're growing as quickly as our imaginations can be translated into code. (Kinect, Microsoft, Xbox 360)

I'm sorry but if actually was Dexter, Professor Oak and Pinky and the Brain then that would be amazing.

Have to ask why they seem to struggling creatively with Kinect when there was so much talk among 3rd party developers and tons of mods from people who hacked it for PC.

This is why Kinect 2 might actually fulfill earlier promises. As of right now the technology behind the current Kinect isn't where it ought to be. Lag and the inability to decipher precise movements makes it current form somewhat limited.

While reading the headline, I imagined a group of people posing "Movie Cover style" in Metro garb all wearing dark sunglasses with several legs bent in awkward and painful looking positions.

Bring it. I have no problems with Kinect. Cool tech IMO.
Axonometri  +   960d ago
You are correct IMO also. Kids love Kinect... A better version could be really cool.
Dlacy13g  +   960d ago
Agreed its cool tech that I look forward to seeing it better realized with Kinect 2.0

edit: on the thought of better realized, I think a must for Kinect 2.0 is for it to work in smaller spaces. One major hurdle of current Kinect is this need to be at 6+ feet from the TV. I think for 2.0 they need to have that device working as close as 4ft, 3ft would be even better but I doubt that will happen.

I'm sure they have improved on everything. Kinect 2 will certainly impress with the added power of the new console and a improved camera with better tracking and resolution.

I don't see how Microsoft have so many IP's but refuse to let their studios work on them.
