As we've seen, the Xbox One Kinect is far more advanced than the current version. However, being able to track joint rotation, heart rate and a lag of only 18 billionths of a second is apparently only the beginning

Gorgeous my good sir, simply gorgeous! At least someone's happy about it. :D
dear god no, id have to stock up on weapons, love the terminator movies though lol
Aside from robots I see technology like this paving the way for other, similar technology. For example: Say we live in a home where Kinect 2.0 sensors are located throughout like security cameras, but instead of simply proving security they also monitor our health like life alert. Notifying help if it sees we're having a heart attack, stroke, injured ourselves an have become unconscious, broken a bone or even if we've been attacked by someone. Another example would be similar to the robot in the article fetching a spoon but instead we could give out commands and have it linked to software functions like bringing up he weather reports, local news, our favorite websites, virtual shopping list. "I'm getting low on mustard", and it hears you "I'm getting low on" being the que, and the item listed on a constantly accumulating shopping/grocery list. Software supporting hardware technology like this could be used in a ton of useful ways. Helping this guy to build his robots in more human like ways is just one of them.
Kinect, more like Kinect 9000, its watching you. Its only a matter of time before it turns on us. Dave: Xbox Off Kinect: Dave, I afraid I can't do that Dave: F*ck that *Reaches to unplug Xbox One* Kinect: Sending all data to Microsoft Overload Dave: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OO!!!!!!
Paranoid much? Everyone are watching you right now...
And this would only be possible by having the Kinect monitor and distribute consumer data: for a profit of course *clap clap clap*
One Box to rule them all! But seriously this is pretty cool stuff, the Kinect has been used in all sorts of interesting and technologically helpful ways, Too bad it sucks at games.
exactly kinect is capable of some pretty cool stuff. just please keep it away from my TV and gaming room. put it in a factory or research facility where it belongs.
You sound like Kinect is forced against you in order to play games.
there will be Arnie who'll be terminating all other OS's and will rewrite them with W8.... NNNOOOOOOOO
So we've had it wrong all these years.... It wasn't Skynet...it was Kinect. Well played MS.

Imagine robot having RROD xD Seriously , This is great for technology. However, I can't imagine my self buying a robot for any reason for my house. It will be like kinect but more advanced and that's creepy especially if they implement DRM to them xD..
I'm not really surprised to hear this. The original Kinect is great tech, as well; it just hasn't translated well to gaming. I feel fairly certain the Kinect 2 will be the same: superb outside outside of gaming, MAYBE decent inside.
I remember the Kinect thing just like HAL9000 in 2001: A Space Odyssey lol
kinect is also really good for mocap, kinect 2.0 will be much better
