Formerly known as “Project Natal”, Kinect is an expansion to the Xbox 360 video game console that adds a controller free gaming and entertainment. Based around a webcam-style add-on peripheral for the Xbox 360 console, it enables users to control and interact with the Xbox 360 without the need to touch a game controller through a natural user interface using gestures, spoken commands, or presented objects and images.
The Kinect sensor is a horizontal bar connected to a small base with a motorized pivot, and is designed to be positioned lengthwise below the video display. The device features an “RGB camera, depth sensor and multi-array microphone running proprietary software”, which provides full-body 3D motion capture, facial recognition, and voice recognition capabilities. The price point for the device is $150.
Kinectimals, Joyride, Kinect Sports, Kinect Adventures and Dance Central are some of the games available at launch.
