Xbox One's Kinect 'Eyes, Ears and Brains' Explored in Videos

A couple of demonstration videos for Microsoft's next-generation Kinect that will be bundled with Xbox One have been released, showing off the 'eyes, ears and brains' of the device.
In the first 'eyes and ears' video, the 3D vision and the larger field view of the 1080p 2D colour camera are showcased, demonstrating the greater fidelity next-gen Kinect has to offer. In fact, it has three times the fidelity of Xbox 360's Kinect, meaning you'll be able to discern even small details, like wrinkles in clothing, facial expressions and fingers.
It's hoped that this will make for more accurate, natural interaction and greater engagement with Kinect games. The increased field of vision meanwhile, enables players to stand closer or further away from Kinect. Audio accuracy has also been improved immensely.
Processing power covers the 'brains' video, with speech, facial, digital signal processing and skeletal tracking all helping to deliver greater precision and accuracy to Kinect experiences. Up to six players can also now be individually recognised by Kinect within the same field of vision. Take a look at Xbox One's Kinect in the videos below.
