Kinect for Windows detailed

New Kinect hardware especially for Windows will be created

Posted on
Microsoft has revealed new details for the Kinect for Windows commercial program, which is set to launch in early 2012.

Building on the existing Kinect for Xbox 360 device, Microsoft have optimized certain hardware components and made firmware adjustments which better enable PC-centric scenarios to create a new hardware version for the device.

Simple changes include shortening the USB cable and the inclusion of a small dongle to improve coexistence with other USB peripherals. New firmware will enable the depth camera to see objects as close as 50 centimeters in front of the device without losing accuracy or precision, with graceful degradation down to 40 centimeters.

“Near Mode” will enable a whole new class of “close up” applications, beyond the living room scenarios for Kinect for Xbox 360.

Customers in the development program will gain access to ongoing updates in both speech and human tracking, in addition to providing fully supported Kinect hardware for Windows.

Applications for the dev program are being accepted now through January 25th, 2012.
