New KinectThe new Kinect for Xbox One can pick up two people speaking at once and discern what each one is saying. Kinect Sports Rivals studio Rare sounded off on the sensor’s features via a new video, as shown by Microsoft Corporate VP Phil Harrison to the audience at the Eurogamer Expo in London recently.

“It can not only hear two people speaking at once and understand two people speaking at once,” said New Technology Lead Developer Nick Burton, “It can also see if their mouths are moving in a completely dark room. And that allows us to do crazy levels of detail.”

Included with every Xbox One, this Kinect is certainly a significant upgrade from its predecessor. The new sensor can detect 25 various joints for 6 different people, recognize which player is using which controller, estimate players’ heart rates, map faces to 1,400 points, and tell you your body mass so you can decide if you need to exercise.
