The lights are on
A new version of Kinect is included with every Xbox One. Microsoft's other version of Kinect – the one focused on computing and business applications – is also in development. Kinect for Windows uses the same technological foundation as the Xbox One's Kinect, and is slated to release next year.
On the Kinect for Windows blog, Microsoft outlined some of the features of the PC-based version of Kinect. The highlights include a color camera, a noise-reducing microphone, improved skeletal tracking, and an infrared sensor that improves detection in less-than-ideal lighting. Of course, a lot of these features sound familiar to what gamers are getting, but with greater emphasis on real-world application.

Doesn't Tony Stark have this tech already?

Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, do you like kinect? I like kinect. Six feet under in New Mexico.
enough already you watch us on the streets and in our workplaces you don't need to watch us in our own f****** homes, and don't say "you don't need to buy one!" because if everybody else buys one and i go to their houses then i'm put on camera perhaps when i don't realise it, this is bullsh*t and an invasion of privacy but of course nobody will care, and it will come out and a few people will buy it and slowly people will get more and more used to it and they will find another way to stick a camera connected to the internet, in your home. then you'll buy that one. so gross.
Is it just me or does the guy on the tv look like he's screaming in horror? Come to think of it, that screenshot looks like some bad horror movie.
