The Xbox One’s motion controller will be available as a stand-alone purchase for Windows PCs
According to a listing on the Microsoft Store the Kinect 2.0 for Windows will be coming to PCs on July 15th with pre-orders now available.
The PC supported Kinect features, more accurate skeletal tracking, expanded field of view, an HD colour camera and improved noise-isolating mics.
When the Kinect 2.0 for Windows was initially announced last year Kinect exec Bob Heddle said at the time, “the new Kinect for Windows sensor will revolutionize computing experiences. The precision and intuitive responsiveness that the new platform provides will accelerate the development of voice and gesture experiences on computers,”
Used in combination with Oculus Rift the potential for new exploration into immersive Virtual reality environments with the Kinect as a motion controller opens up some interesting new possibilities for PC gaming.
