Microsoft Says Kinect Won't Invade Your Privacy

Microsoft's new Kinect device will put an advanced sensor array in the living room of millions of people, an Internet-connected set of machine ears and eyes capable of capturing voice, recognizing faces and tracking body movement.

Don't worry, the company says, we won't peep.

"By default we don't listen or look at anything," MIcrosoft's director of the Kinect technology, Alex Kipman, told Kotaku in a recent interview. "No data is ever sent back to Microsoft. Period. Full stop."

There must be a setting that the user may allow Microsoft to listen and look at anything.

Betamax didn't get popular but it was used by most professionals in the media industry.
