Rumour: Kinect to Get Significantly More Accurate with Update


Here comes the science

Last month, Blitz Games CEO Philip Oliver spoke of USB imposing limitations on Kinect, with the bandwidth of the USB 2.0 connection restricting the amount of information the sensor can send in any one go. Now Eurogamer claims a source at Microsoft has confirmed the company is working on technology to allow better compression of the data, theoretically allowing more information to reach the Xbox.The upshot of this compression would be increasing Kinect's accuracy, allowing it to track movement in far greater detail, including the rotation of your hand and even individual fingers. Around the time of the sensor's launch, Kudo Tsunoda said that Kinect's launch features only scratched the surface of its potential, and if this update rumour turns out to be true we're inclined to agree with him.

Do you think finger-tracking would improve the Kinect experience?
