2 days ago that presented the new XBox One, and one of the things that most had us intrigued was that had the new KINECT.
If you’re not aware, I summarize what you at points that I consider to be the most important.
The new XBox One is more ugly than bite sand. And the new Kinect is not far behind. The good news is that behind the appearance of seedy gadget of a movie from the 80′s the new kinect has
- More deep sensor resolution (but much more), detects if you are near enough to the buttons on a shirt
- Much more resolution in the camera, we now have an HD Video Camera, 1080 p
- Active IR, an active infrared sensor which allows to identify objects and people in environments with little or no luminosity (zero is ZERO, with the lights out)
- They have not said anything engine and I think there is no more. Now with the wide angle that has the new Kinect needless move it up or down in order to focus on better
And now we are going with the features…
If we talk about the Skeleton tracking, kinect has moved from version 1.0 to version 2.0. They are now detected more Joints, can be detected in the same rotation, fingers, etc. are detected We’ll it’s awesome
Another interesting feature is the ability to analyze the forces acting on each Joint. The following image shows how to pass weight one foot to the other, it turns red to indicate an excess of force in the same (if che, sounds like a Jedi)
Impact = Muscle + Force
Here is another good, analysing the acceleration of the body elements and crossing this information with the force that is applied in the same, it is possible to identify and see something like “impacts”. In the WIRED video journalist makes a… of the Street Figther which is to die of joy!
If if if it seems a bit of science fiction but now you can have access to information with the heartbeat of every user. Analyzing changes in the skin, you can estimate keystrokes per minute, etc. I guess clinical applications with this front
Advanced facial recognition
Autologon using facial recognition
Detection of up to 6 players
and much more!
By the way, this information is published. You can see in the following video of the cracks of WIRED that has happened to me the Edu.
