The lights are on
The next Xbox is believed to include a newly designed Kinect motion sensor, but that might just be the start for Microsoft's plans for the device.
The Verge reports that Microsoft has a number of future uses for the peripheral, including miniaturizing it so it can be embedded into laptops, tablets, and TVs. An exact timetable wasn't given for when we can see some of these new uses, but according to the article, it's something the company wants to do.
Microsoft has not made any official announcements about the next iteration of Kinect, but an event is being planned for the end of April.
