Next-generation Kinect rumored to read lips with high accuracy

Xbox 360 Rumours News Microsoft

Hm… as a writer you know you must always take every rumor you hear with a grain of salt but this one certainly sounds a bit promising. Eurogamer has reported that one of their unidentified sources has told them that Microsoft’s next-generation Kinect is going to be so accurate it will be able to read the player’s lips while they are playing. This means it will offer improved motion and voice sensing.

Besides the voice recognition, their source also says it will be able to tell when the user is angry or any other range of emotions as well as what direction they are facing. Currently there is no actual announcement from Microsoft about a Kinect 2 nor a next generation Xbox console but the source also reports that the Kinect 2 will be bundled with next gen consoles.

As a big fan of anime and games I'll be quick to cover anything that happens to be of interest.
