Kinect 2 to Read You Better Than Your Mother

At least that’s what Microsoft is hoping the device will be able to do in the future. Though perhaps some of the things described may seem a bit uncanny as stated by Eurogamer:

Kinect 2 will be so powerful it will enable games to lip read, detect when players are angry, and determine in which direction they are facing. Kinect 2 can track the pitch and volume of player voices and facial characteristics to measure different emotional states.

The device is expected to be bundled with the next iteration of the Xbox.

More augmented reality? Personally, I’d prefer a physical violin.
