Kinect 2.0 tech demos showcase a more responsive system

No really, it's better this time

Ever dedicated to evangelizing the usefulness of Kinect 2.0, Microsoft has released two tech demos showcasing the camera's improvements over its predecessor. The first video focuses on how the Kinect 2.0 interacts with your body: reading your skeleton, muscle structure, heart rate, and pulse. The second demo shows the specifics on how the camera will hold up to low-light situations, as well as distracting ambient lights that proved a pain to the original sensor. 

While a lot of the information in these demos has been known since the Xbox One reveal event last May, it's still pretty cool to see the tech at work first hand. I guess now all that remains is to see how well the tech is implemented by game developers.
