Kinect for Win­dows v2 Sen­sor Re­tails at US$199

HWM (Malaysia) - - NEWSWIRE -

Hob­by­ists and part-time pro­gram­mers, take note: Mi­crosoft has be­gan sell­ing the Kinect for Win­dows v2 sen­sor in July for US$199 (ap­prox. RM630). De­sign-wise, the prod­uct is sim­i­lar to that of the Kinect for Xbox One, which in­clude a large noise-iso­lat­ing mi­cro­phone ar­ray, HD color cam­era, Time-of-Flight tech­nol­ogy and an ac­tive in­frared sys­tem.

Ac­cord­ing to the Mi­crosoft Store, the Kinect for Win­dows v2 sen­sor “gives de­vel­op­ers more of the pre­ci­sion, re­spon­sive­ness, and in­tu­itive ca­pa­bil­i­ties they need to de­velop in­ter­ac­tive voice- and ges­ture-based ap­pli­ca­tions for the Win­dows desk­top and Win­dows Store.”

High price point aside, the sen­sor also does not ship with the Kinect for Win­dows SDK 2.0 soft­ware, as the li­cense is sold separately. With the soft­ware in place, de­vel­op­ers can then cre­ate their own ap­pli­ca­tions with C++, C#, VB.Net, Cx, or JavaScript.
