Are you looking for the latest gadget that you can add to your collection? If so, you would be glad to know that Microsoft will soon release Xbox Kinect, the latest gaming device in town that is worth waiting for. Fortunately, you do not have to wait too long because it will be launched before the end of this year.
If you love playing with your Nintendo Wii or PlayStation Move, you would also love Kinect by Microsoft. The main reason why you would love to have Kinect is because you are the controller. This means that you do not need a remote controller to play the game because Kinect has a motion sensor that can detect your every movement. The sensor can also remember your face and voice. This will be a new experience for the gaming fanatics. This sensor and the absence of remote controller are the things that set Kinect apart from the other gaming consoles. You only need yourself to be able to play games using your Xbox Kinect.
Microsoft Kinect for Xbox 360 was once called Project Natal and it was introduced to the public in 2009. This cool device looks like a small bar that you can place above or underneath your TV. It has small cameras or sensors that can track your every move. You do not need to wear any special clothes or hold remote controllers. You just need to stay in front of the TV and move your body. The sensor will send the information to the software. The software will then decode the information that will be used by the game you are currently playing.
To make your Microsoft Kinect work, all you need is to have your older Xbox 360. Plug Xbox Kinect into an electrical outlet and connect it to your Xbox console. If you want to use the newer version of Xbox 360 which is slimmer and lighter, you can power off your Kinect device directly from your console.
This new innovation from Microsoft is one of the biggest breakthrough in the gaming industry this year. While it’s still a few months away from the official release date of the Xbox Kinect, gamers already start to pre-order this gaming system for holiday season. Microsoft even warn that there might not be enough supply to fulfill the high demand. So if you are one of those who are planning to buy Xbox Kinect for Christmas this year, better place an order now before it runs out of stock!
