Microsoft Kinect 2 to read lips?

Posted on Wednesday, November 30 2011 @ 12:29:59 CET by


Eurogamer heard Microsoft's future Xbox consoles will be bundled with a next-generation Kinect device. This Kinect 2 is said to be so accurate that it can lip read and measure the emotional state of the player:
One development source told Eurogamer that Kinect 2 will be so powerful it will enable games to lip read, detect when players are angry, and determine in which direction they are facing.

Kinect 2 can track the pitch and volume of player voices and facial characteristics to measure different emotional states.

The current Kinect is hamstrung by having to pass data to the Xbox 360 through ageing USB technology - an issue discussed by Eurogamer last year.

When Kinect launched in November 2010 the depth sensor was set at a 30 frames per second limit and a 320x240 resolution limit. The issue relates to the USB controller interface, which is capable of around 35MB/s, but it only uses around 15/16MB/s. This artificial limit is in place because multiple USB devices can be used at once on an Xbox 360.
