Gaming, News

It’s time guys, the Microsoft Kinect will be arriving for PC sometime in early 2012.

Microsoft confirmed the news in a blog post that the Kinect for PC will sport different hardware to make it easier for developers who wish to create new software adn carry out tests on the Kinect.

The new hardware will not be the only new feature either, with new software updates to allow the Kinect Sensor to work in many more ways than it already can.

“Building on the existing Kinect for Xbox 360 device, we have optimized certain hardware components and made firmware adjustments which better enable PC-centric scenarios.”

“Of particular interest to developers will be the new firmware which enables the depth camera to see objects as close as 50 centimeters in front of the device without losing accuracy or precision, with graceful degradation down to 40 centimeters.”
