Does Kinect have problems with bright lights? Hilarious Video included!

The calibration feature of Microsoft's Kinect seems to have a problem with bright lighting. The guys of Cynamite have taken the system to their (brightly lit) studio and the results have been, well, amusing - to say the least.

doesn't work when its too dark? doesn't work when its too bright? only works when its "just right" sounds like little red riding hood.

xAlmostPro2815d ago

MS hype machine didn't help this thing sell out.
witch is surprising considering that MS said they had to stop pre-orders cause the demand was to great.

I'm telling anybody, to give kinect a try for themselves, nothing against the wii or move but seriously kinect is alot more fun, I got off work early and spent 5hrs playing kinect adventures, kinect sports, and dance central with my wife and kids and it was the most fun we ever had gaming together. Its not just for kids, I had a neighbor over he's my age and we both were getting competitive having a great time. Lag wasn't a problem, my house is avg size and space wasn't a problem(it tells you when you're too close or not far enough), 6ft really is not alot, I'm a black guy and I setup kinect ID for me and my whole family, it had no problem recognizing me, the dashboard stuff and voice recognition is amazing, I'm telling you kinect works, seriously I'm not saying its going to make you breakfast but its a great piece of tech and the games are alot better than microsoft has been given credit for.

BubloZX2814d ago

Us hardcore gamers don't sit around play lame shit like kinect adventures and dance central proves your not a gamer.

avengers19782814d ago

Tell me that your still playing for 5 hours a day in a month. Sure you just got it so it's great... When I first got move it was all I played for a week, but now I only play a little each week.

lol are you serious?

No, it works fine. I first calibrated it with the lights on and it played fine, later at night I played it with all the lights out and it worked fine, I didn't have any special lighting tricks, just the lights on or off. I moved moved my coffee table over to the side wall out of view, and just started to play games. Theres alot of misinformation I'm hearing and I just dont see it. Sometimes I went to the wrong menu because of course Im getting used to it but other than that its really easy to use.

kinect has to be the biggest hardware disappointment for this generation of gaming lol.

xAlmostPro2815d ago

agreed yet certain news sites are giving it good scores even though there is clear eveidence and proof that its not good tech, and that every kinect game so far is on rails and pretty much a complate clone of each other

RedSoakedSponge2815d ago

yeah i guess its a case of either microsoft paying the reviewers, or the people reviewing arent very experienced. Cos i can even see though all the videos how unreliable the tech is.

visualb2815d ago

i must disagree, biggest hardware disappointment will be this:


Sackdude2814d ago

At least it works and it plays games and it has some good MMOs.

Kinect is FAIL!
