Microsoft have plans to intergrate Kinect into TV sets everywhere, reports claim that they have begun talks with Sony and Vizio. Could this be the start of Microsofts Smart Home dream?
Using your hands to change channel a la Minority Report, but I think there is something that does all that a little better. Its called a remote control. Its easier to lift a finger than lift an arm...
Or how about to just say a channel name?
What happens if the channel you are watching says a different channel name ?
How often do you hear channels say 'Kinect BBC 1'?
what if you got the tv up loud?
Damnit guys, get off my case! :p
Wt if its a porn channel and u don't want ur wife to know wt ur watching :p
Easier to lift a finger than speak to a machine...
its goos to hear it im lookin forward to it
Cool. Now Microsoft and the CIA will be able to stock our ass easier.
Where are they stocking us , lol think you meant stalking .
Yeah, sorry my english is off, lol.
As long as they're silk stalkings. That's all I wear.
TV's don't really need full body 3D tracking, just hand tracking would do, which can be done on any £10 webcam. Voice recognition could also be done with a simple microphone and, let's face it, even with Apple behind the tech, its not really at the point where everyone can use it without a hitch now anyway. I'd prefer smartphone/tablet integration tech to a camera in my TV. Being able to stream whatever is on my TV to my phone/tablet would be fantastic, especially if you could control channels, volume etc with touch. Give me an app for that, oh, and a REAL ice cream sammich!
You dont really need a kinect to do this but if you could program your TV to then yea it could. I saw a company demonstrating this on TV when i was researching kinect as my senior project.
I'm guessing Apple TV will change TV forever will some sort of Siri implementation.
Did anybody notice the "inside Halo 5" option beside the "grandmas room" option the reporter pointed out. @ 2:36 into the video the reporter was clearly more interested in being able to change the room into grannys room as he picked it out between a Project Gotham file and a inside Halo 5 file. What the hell kinda reporter would miss that one?
