Ever since the computer was invented, life has become easier. It enabled everyone to do things that were thought of as impossible in earlier times. People can now communicate with their loved ones who are abroad through chat and even see their loved ones through the camera. Student’s lives were also made easier because they can now do painless research through the World Wide Web. Not only are computers used in business and in schools, they are now also used for numerous recreational activities like gaming and exercise. In conjunction with this, a variety of gaming consoles and devices have been created by different companies. Kinect is one of these and Kinect games are quickly becoming a very popular choice for fun.
Kinect is made to be used with a gaming console, the very popular Xbox 360. Kinect can be likened to Nintendo’s creation, Wii. Kinect has just been launched in North America on November 4, 2010. The release dates in Japan, Australia, Singapore and Europe came at a later date.
The Kinect sensor is quite small. The sensor is in a bar shaped horizontally which connects to a small base that has a motorized pivot. The Kinect sensor comes with a camera, a sensor and microphone. It is designed to be capable of 3D motion capture, voice recognition and facial recognition. For now, the voice recognition capability of the device is only available in the United States, Japan, Canada and the United Kingdom. It will be available in 2011 in other areas.
