Microsoft unveiled ‘Kinect’ for Xbox
Microsoft has unveiled “Kinect,” its latest technological creation for game systems, which allows users to direct the X-Box with their body movements.
Kinect recognizes player’s movements and voices, and enables users to interact with their existing Xbox 360s and some games without a handheld controller.
“You are the controller,” ABC News quoted Mike Delman, corporate vice president of Global Marketing for the Interactive Entertainment Business, as saying.
He added: “You simply step in front of the sensor and Kinect sees you move, hears your voice and recognizes your face.”
Facial and voice recognition in the Kinect will allow users to log into their Xbox LIVE accounts without pressing a button, and interacting with the system’s interface is just a hand’s wave away.
Microsoft has announced Kinect would be available Nov. 4, with 15 launch titles.
