X Box 360 is hugely popular with users all over the world. Needless to say its Kinect accessory has become a rage since its launch. This Microsoft offering is more than just a motion sensing device and has been praised by developers for its ability to perform complex multiple tasks. Earlier in February this year Microsoft had made Kinect available for Windows.
PC users were excited; however Microsoft had not offered the PC compatible version in India. Finally, after a long and patient wait Microsoft has made available this PC compatible version in India. Named Kinect for Windows, Microsoft is targeting majority of businesses and developers in India.
Features included in the Windows Kinect device are, enhanced speech, skeletal tracking, seated mode tracking and face tracking. As of now this product will not be available commercially due to lack of readily available games and apps. However if the device does manage good sales, Microsoft will release Kinect for Windows commercially. Priced at Rs 20,000 this device can be ordered through MS resellers.
