Rumolololol: Kinect 2 so accurate it can read lips

Rumolololol: Kinect 2 so accurate it can read lips photo



If only this rumored device could read my lips now. 

Eurogamer has sources that say that Microsoft's next-generation Kinect device will be so accurate that it can read lips. It's an upgrade of the current tech, they say, offering improved motion sensing and voice recognition. The development source tells them that aside from being able to read lips, this new sensor will also be able to see when users are angry, and determine which direction they are facing. 

This new Kinect will use something way faster than the current USB interface, unlocking the ability to stream much more data, and use high resolution cameras.

"It can be cabled straight through on any number of technologies that just take phenomenally high res data straight to the main processor and straight to the main RAM and ask, what do you want to do with it?" Eurogamer's source said.

Finally, this new Kinect will come bundled with future Xbox consoles.

My "sources" say that one of the Kinect 2 launch games is Chris Hansen's How to Catch a Predator. In it you'll play as one of five child predators. You'll have to use your best poker face against Kinect 2's high res sensors to fool a virtual Hansen in rough, live TV interrogations. 

"I was just having him over for fresh-baked cookies. Really."
