Microsoft Kinect Connects You to Xbox 360
How can you enhance your experience of playing video games and become a part of your favorite games in reality? This is no Sci-fi stuff, but a dream come true in the guise of a gadget which tracks your movements and allows you to play games with your friends and family. Microsoft has unveiled the “controller-free gaming and entertainment experience” – Kinect, the new motion-control system for your new Xbox 360.
How Does It Work?
This device uses Infrared (IR) light in the 3D space to trace you. Combined with advanced software (that is 360 compatible), the device is capable of tracking 48 points of your body in real time. Moreover, it can trail two players simultaneously at any given time.
Microsoft has made this gadget fully motorized to produce the desired result and enable it to capture you efficiently. Its tilt serves this purpose.
Instruct in Your Voice
Yes, now you can talk to your Xbox with the help of an in-built microphone in the Kinect.
Ask for more and you have it. This amazing device can actually recognize your face. So, the next time your friends are there to play games enact some magical trick by signing in without actually typing.
Chat Through ‘Videokinect’
If your friends are on Xbox Live or Windows Live Messenger, you can video chat with them through ‘videokinect’. You can even watch and enjoy a video together.
Connected to Xbox 360, Kinect has its own interface which is user-friendly and fun to work with. There are no more of those chunky tabs, but eye-catching icons. To load an app simply wave your hand to hit the icon. To make it effortless further just speak out the app’s name. Similarly, if you want the app to pause then either speak out or pinch a virtual button.
With Microsoft’s Kinect coupled together with the new Xbox 360 you can’t slouch on your living room sofa anymore. It will make you jump up and high to experience the games with your love ones. There are plenty of games to keep you engaged. Wait till the end of this year to transform your house into virtually anything from mountains to race tracks or to a wild river.
