seven years of strange experiments


that's not to say it didn't contribute to some truly wild experiences over the years. developers quickly applied kinect to surgery, physical therapy and a range of other medical uses. three years after its debut, the kinect was able to read sign language. musicians flocked to the technology, applying it to live shows and videos. and then there were the games: fantasia: music evolved, d4: dark dreams don't die and fru were brilliant examples of the breadth of experience possible via kinect's gesture-tracking interface. even kinect sports rivals, for all of its flaws, laid the groundwork for local multiplayer in motion-controlled gaming.below, we've collected a handful of trippy, strange and downright cool kinect experiments from its seven years on the market. the kinect is dead; long l...

kinect is pretty great at scanning dino bones


while the kinect's resolution tops out at 500 micrometers, it only costs $100, compared to thousands of dollars for high-end 3d imaging systems that get down to 50 or 100 micrometers. still, it was precise enough to scan the skull so scientists can look closer at mysterious holes in the jaw.there's an easy joke here about using a dinosaur to scan a dinosaur: after reactive outcry following some of microsoft's kinect ambitions when the xbox one launched back in 2013, the gaming titan has slowly shut down the motion-capture camera system. heck, after only two third-party kinect-playable games came out in 2016, the developer of one of them (the brilliantfru) told engadget at this year's e3 that we shouldn't expect many more games to use the peripheral.which is a shame, given how versatil...






microsoft ceases production of the kinect


that's not to say that the kinect was a failure in and of itself. the technology was revolutionary; the standalone product, however, didn't take off the way microsoft had hoped. according to co.design, microsoft has sold around 35 million kinects since 2010. the device got a boost when it was coupled with the xbox one at launch, but microsoft was forced to to introduce a version of the console without the camera because of price considerations and lagging sales.the kinect's technology will live on in various forms, including, surprisingly, in the iphone x. apple acquired primesense, the israeli company that created the 3d tech in the original version of the kinect, back in 2013. the iphone x will use primesense's algorithms in the depth-sensing camera's face id system. additionally, m...

microsoft stops selling the xbox one kinect adapter


as it stands, many of those who wanted the adapter already have it. microsoft gave the adapter away for free for 8 months after the launch of the xbox one s, and started selling it in april for $40. and if it wasn't already clear that you had to hurry to get one, major retailers like amazon and microsoft itself have listed the adapter as out of stock for months.this still creates issues for kinect fans who want to keep using the pioneering device and aren't content to settle for a headset or a usb webcam. unless you can keep a first-generation xbox one hanging around, you'll either have to find the adapter at a reseller or score a used example on an auction site. and if none of those are options (such as for pc-based kinect users)... well, you're stuck. there hasn't exactly been an ab...
