After a long break of revelation of Windows 8 we at last get some stuff to tear up and thats relating to Kincet. We told ya guys before that Kinect features will be added up to Windows 8, but on Monday (16 May 2011) it was officially announced that the Kinect for Windows SDK will be kicked out this week so that the developers can get some hand on it by using it on Windows 8. This time we also get to know the features of the Kinect which will be used in Windows 8

  • Robust Skeletal Tracking for high-performance capabilities that track the skeleton image of one or two persons moving within the Kinect field of view
  • Advanced Audio Capabilities, including four-element microphone array with sophisticated acoustic noise and echo cancellation for great audio; beam formation to identify the current sound source and integration with the Windows speech recognition API also included
  • XYZ depth camera for standard color camera stream access and depth data that indicates the distance of the object from the Kinect camera

Kinect has also broken the Guinness World Record  as it was the fastest selling gaming console, 133,333 units per day for a total of eight million units in its first 60 days between November 4, 2010 and January 3, 2011 O_o
