Kinect Sensor was an instant hit when it was released a couple of years ago for the Xbox 360,which wrote the success story for the console right from the launch of the Sensor. Then came the hacks from the enthusiasts who tried to stretch the usability of Kinect to try out some interesting stuff and then a couple of months ago Kinect for Windows was released to bring the Kinect Sensor to Windows platform.
In the past we have seen a lot of demo videos featuring the Kinect Integration between the Xbox Live Services and Windows Phone devices. But have you ever thought that the Kinect itself would make an appearance in the Windows Phone itself ? Well your wish might come out to be true.
According to recent reports from VR-Zone,Microsoft is planning big for the upcoming Windows Phone 8 release with a possible Kinect Technology integrated directly onto the Windows Phone 8 Devices,claiming that Microsoft is working hard to bring the Kinect Natural User Interface (NUI) to Windows Phone 8 which would make it an exciting and one of the most innovative features on a smartphone device.
According to their sources, “Kinect NUI is being closely tied to Microsoft TellMe, since Kinect allegedly captured more voice patterns than Apple Siri”. So along with Kinect we can also see advanced voice recognition feature in Windows Phone 8. Tough at this stage this is tagged as a rumor but it would be an interesting feature and could possibly be beneficial for Windows Phone platform which is still to prove its mettle in the smartphone market.
Here is Kinect running on Windows Phone 7, chances are it will be very similar,
