Microsoft hasn’t been saying much of anything in regards to the Xbox 720, neither is the corporate commenting on the complete rumors that experience popped up recently. Nevertheless, that won’t stopping the flow of data, so whether or not they are legitimate or not, rumors are all we need to work with for now.
As stated by TruTechNoid , new details of the Xbox 720 Kinect 2.0 motion control device were leaked, and it looks impressive. Kinect 2.0 could end up what the primary Kinect device must have been when it launched back in 2010.
The leaked information speaks of a style wherein Kinect 2.0 can track users whether or not they are sitting or standing. It also has the power to trace users in low light or no light whatsoever via active infrared: here is something the unique device was unable to do.
Unlike the primary device, Kinect 2.0 can track as much as six people mutually, and has a resolution of 1920×1080 full HD, up from the meager 640×480. There’s also a far-improved field of view, which might allow for a miles larger playing area.
The reported new features are:
- a method for sitting or standing
- Ability to trace players with a height of just one meter
- Better detection of a player’s hand position
- Tracking of six people, up from just two
- A far better field of view for a miles larger play space
- Higher resolution and quality RGB stream
- Depth stream is way higher resolution, which in turn enables resolve of much smaller objects, separates objects a lot better and ready to capture depth curvature around edges much better
- Active infrared enables tracking in low or no light
- Latency was improved by 33ms
- USB 3.0
- Frame rate up from 15fps to 30fps
- Resolution up from 640×480 to 1920×1080
The something many fans of Kinect will need to see fixed within the newest version for the Xbox 720 is for the device to trace users in a smaller space. Not everyone lives in a large apartment with lots of space, Microsoft must take this under consideration.
