|A Eurogamer report which cites unnamed sources claims the 'Kinect 2' will be more sensitive to motion and offer voice recognition. The intention is to deliver a more immersing gaming experience by stimulating gamers through visual and auditory inputs. |
The Kinect 2 is believed to be powerful enough to read lips and determine which direction they're facing.
It also has the potential to measure a gamer's emotional response by recognising the volume of their voice, their tonal pitch and facial characteristics. By doing so, it could identify when a player is feeling, for example, angry.
Although the current Kinect has been recognised as the fastest selling electronic device of all time (according to the Guinness Book of World Records), old USB technology capped how quickly it could communicate with an Xbox console.
