What I've heard from developers was this thing actually worked exactly as advertised which is why it's still used for so many engineering products over the years and to this day. The colossal failure wasn't the hardware, but the horrible dev tools. Microsoft aparently made it a nightmare to make the sensors work as intended and developers inevitably had to take shortcuts to release games on time. The reason you see sensors on instagram and snapchat filters working so well now isn't because the tech improved. It's actually using the same tech that was in the kinect from the start. They just took the time to properly write the code.

Did you know that the TrueDepth camera system in the iPhone X and up are basically a shrunken 360 kinect (not Xbox one, that worked differently). Apple bought out the company that developed the technology licensed out to Microsoft for the 360 kinect. (That company was primesense).
L C 2 أشهر قبل
@WUMBOL0GY Your overall point isn't wrong in that the tech itself is good, but it is wrong in that you claim what Microsoft advertised wasn't wrong. They advertise depth detection and processing at high speed, which is how all of those dream like advertised activities were enabled. That's not going to be materialised any time soon even today. It's too complex to get data from depth imaging camera, process it, then take the next one, process it again. The gap between the captured frames must allow enough for meaningful processing to take place. The advantage of the Kinect and why it got used to much by third party developers, is because it provides a functionality at a low cost. Other depth detection devices, which can be more sophisticated, allowing for faster capture, more accurate depth data, more data in general etc... are very expensive because they are niche. Kinect was mass produced, packing only a certain level of tech to enable a low price for consumer, dragging down the price of the functionality drastically, which is why medical imaging devices use it. A fun parallel with Kinect is FaceID. Apple own the same depth detection hardware company that licensed the tech to Microsoft for Kinect. They work almost the same way, camera receiving depth information to construct images. It was used for FaceID and some stupid emoji, but the growth of the streaming industry and advance in Live2D animation software enabled the VTubing industry, a use case completely outside of its original intended purposes. At the end of the day, it really wasn't just the "dev kit" that doomed Microsoft. They simply were not ready for the tech. Apple's depth detection is wildly popular because of software. Microsoft software simply could not compensate for what the hardware can or cannot do. Today, their software had gotten a lot better. Hopefully they can compete with Apple for consumer depth imaging.

Dance Central was the only reason I had an Xbox Kenect. Well the only reason I had one was I was gifted one and then it was so popular my sister borrowed it and never gave it back. So I went out to buy a used one. But that was the only reason. I took it to a bar for a party and it was the most fun ever. Most nip-slips in one evening no doubt.

Harmonix did the best Kinect games. More than any other developer, they understood what it was good for and good at, and used it effectively. The only other game that made good use of the Kinect was Skyrim. Being able to use the shouts by saying them was so much better than mapping them to a controller button.

I actually loved the Kinect and am sad it was discontinued. Games that used it well such as Dance Central, Kinect Sports and Fruit Ninja were a blast to play with casual friends. If they had more realistic marketing and didn’t try to force it down everyone’s throats, I think it could have worked out as a nice option for the (admittedly few) people who enjoyed the games.

Microsoft was a victim of its own success with the Kinect. They sold so many in such a short time during the 360 era, that they came to the conclusion that they had a legitimate hit on their hands. Combined with real data showing that people had been using their 360 on their living room TV to watch all kinds of media on disc and through apps (I watched tons of Netflix on mine, plus sports on the ESPN app, and so on). The timing was perfect with the Xbox One in development, and the pressure from products like Apple TV (which seemed at the time like a threat to take over the living room media experience - by this time MS had become really paranoid about Apple’s resurgence and their own string of failures in mobile and other products), and MS really thought it had a trend to jump in front of. All the data supported them. And then they went and tried to pitch this whole vision at E3 to a room full of people who only cared about games, and they set it on fire. Wrong message to the wrong audience. If they had stuck to a gaming-centric message to that crowd, and then quietly marketed the media capabilities to a broader, more casual audience, they might have had a much better time of it. Playstation did exactly that and, well..

At the launch of XBox One, Microsoft was announcing predictions of 1 billion unit sales. Which would have been (at the time) be more than all console sales in history combined, going back to the original Pong system. I think it's safe to say they were a bit optimistic. My take was that they thought that, in Kinect, they had managed to create the next touchscreen--that is, the Kinect interface would do to the TV market what touchscreens did to phones. In marketing terms, this is technically known as "huffing your own farts."

teehundeart 2 أشهر قبل
Even then I'm not sure all of the focus on media capability was a good idea considering that most people prefer to use smartphones rather than PiP and also Smart TVs were popping up that didn't require you buy a $500 console to play Netflix. And they didn't even get the TV functionality right from a technical perspective. On 50Hz programs like you'd see in Europe the TV signal looked more choppy when passed through an Xbox. It was literally a downgrade to just watching regular TV

@IronWish Yes, exactly. Wrong message to the wrong audience. Show some D4 concept art to Blizzcon, to let the PC gamers know you're working on it and everyone is happy (if not satisfied :). Show the gacha mobile Diablo at an Asian games show, and they would soak it up. But mistake one for the other and you get combustion.

You know, kinect was an incredible device for kids specially to play. I got my first xbox with a kinect and i spent tons of hours playing just kinect sports, beating world records on it. The main problem in opinion is that the games were poorly developed. A lot of them just asked you to move your hand, or do the same movements over and over. Games like kinect sports that were multiplyier and forced you to do a lot of different moves with your whole body were the best.

The ONE thing I will give this dumb system: Buying the Kinect and the first three Dance Central games was still less expensive than buying a treadmill, and more engaging. That said, it's not like dancing games were exclusive to Microsoft. This was just how it worked for *me*.

As I'm reading it from all the comments is that the Kinect walked or crawled more like so that VR, medical applications of kinetic sensors and DANCE CENTRAL could run and I think that's brilliant. I remember giving Xbox a chance during the kinect phase and then I sprinted back to my playstation safe space within a month. It was fun though, for a week.

The actual hardware is great. Engineering students have done some WILD shit by plugging a Kinect into a PC. The game developers and/or publishers not willing to throw money at developers are the ones who dropped the ball. Basically the same thing happening to VR right now. Flawless tech, but there's like four or five truly amazing VR games, and one of them is a port of a game from 2004 (RE4). There's no reason this should be the way it is. If somebody made a half life Alyx quality VR title every year, I'd buy one every year. Hell I'd buy five. But nobody is fuckin doin it, cause they're COWARDS. TAKE MY MONEY.

I loved the Connect. Connect Sports, being able to make Skype calls on the TV, etc. It had its uses. The problem was Microsoft way overhyped it, then gave up on it. Apple has launched several technologies half baked, but then spent the time over the years to perfect them. An additional problem was the original Xbox One required the Connect with an additional $100 over the purchase price compared to the PS4, and they got creamed in the marketplace by Sony. If they had made it optional, taken the time to develop properly and not oversold it, it could have worked. The technology itself was actually very innovative.

I actually liked the Kinect. I liked controlling stuff on the screen by waving rather than finding wherever I put the controller. But I defiitely like the Kinect as a 3D scanner - the 360 Kinect works well as a low-price scanner for static objects, and the Xbone variant can be used for some middling-to-decent entry-level motion capture.

Worked with Middle Schoolers when the Kinect came out, and they actually got alot of use out of it, though specifically with just 3 games (Dance Central, Kinect Sports, and Kinect Adventures), and it worked very well all things considered. What it did not work for however was any level of the hard-core gaming crowd, which are of course the ones actually buying XBox systems, so...yeah. It was cool however with the XBone version as basically a multimedia device that turns on, off, and controls every device in the living room with just your voice (also worked fairly well, as my non-gamer wife would attest). So cool in fact that it has since been copied by every single Alexa/Google Home/iHome device in existence, and they did it first. p.s. I will legit die on this hill, that Dance Central was a far superior game to Just Dance, and only died because it was tied to a peripheral that was mismarketed and mismanaged.

I loved my 360 Kinect at the time and I will add that its been collecting dust behind my tv ever since it was released but honestly the only problem I had with it that discouraged me from continuing to play is the required space it needed. No matter what room I put it in, it kept telling me to back up. I couldn’t back up, I’d just hit the wall or a chair or the bed. And it wanted me to move around side to side, back then my room didn’t have enough space for that. And then they stopped making games for it which was another thing. But Kinect Adventures and Harry Potter were fun on Kinect. Good times

Kinect works excellent with the dance games. Dance Central and Just Dance. A smoke machine, a disco ball, a subwoofer, and booze is all it took for me to throw wildly successful Meetup Group parties. Non gamer women loved it. Hence local guys loved it, and the brave ones would join in on the dancing. It also helped that I lived near a seasonal ski resort and that there were a lot of strippers in the area. I also had a full Rock Band setup to switch over to as the evening wore on. Recently passed the whole setup to a friend who has a couple kids interested in dance. They absolutely love it and have learned a lot of early 00 dance moves.

Man, I had an OG Xbox One that came with the kinect. I also got it with Dance Central. I L-O-V-E-D that game, probably the best and most accurate use of the kinects body motion detection capabilites. It was very accurate and required you to precisely move as the dancers on screen, creating real challenge and a great workout in the process (unlike in other games like just dance on wii where the motion detection was limited to the remote and so you could basically cheat if you wanted to). Rest of the applications and games were pretty crap though. Only tried 2 more games I got from friends before realizing that besides Dance central, everything else using it was trash. Heck, my kinect also crapped the bed after 2 years of use and I got it replaced free of charge, even though the warranty was out of date already.

I actually really enjoyed using it for netflix. Just telling the Xbox to turn on that also turned on the TV and doing all the navigation with voice or motion was nice and just asking it to pause when needed rather than turning the controller back on to do it was alot more seamless. The games were never there tho so it was just an occasionally useful peripheral. I'm annoyed they stopped supporting it but I'm also annoyed they changed the dashboard annually so nobody cares what I think lol

honestly, kinect games were actually pretty awesome party games for non-gamers, and a blast to play for like 20 minutes or so, it was indeed different and fun, and let's face it, it worked waaaaaay better than anything the wii and it's shitty cheapo motion sensor did it just didn't stay fun for very long, and definitely not for over a hundred bucks pricetag long

I had fun with kinect adventures for about two hours. It was also nice to have when I was watching tv and the controller fell just just far enough that I'd have to get off the couch to pick it up.

It is really interesting how Nintendo hit a home run with the Wii’s motion controls, stumbled with Wii U, and Switch’s motion controls became lukewarm. Xbox tried to Kinect but failed; whilst PlayStation had a wiimote copy too, and decided to innovate further with PS VR

I actually appreciated the Kinect, because it showed the gaming industry's willingness to actually develop games as a medium instead of just rereleasing Castlevania or Doom again and again. Admittedly, it's best for a more casual experience, but that's fine. Dance Central is obviously rad. The only big problem for me is finding enough space to set it up.

The Kinect is actually a pretty interesting and misunderstood piece of tech. I think gaming wasn't a great application of it though

So there was a time where I was wholly bought in to Microsoft's scams. Apple, especially, be damned, as i rocked my Zune (which I did, in fact, watch a movie on, but more often much smaller videos) and while I did also own and love my plumber's Wii, I also was still firmly in the Go To Hell Sony camp, so I wanted whatever gimmick controllers my systems could throw at me. I laughed at that E3 along with everyone else because at least I wasn't so naive as to think Molyneux wasn't a bold-faced liar. But ultimately, the Kinect had its pros to go with all its cons. The voice commands were spectacular for media viewing, replaced the 360 remote control in its entirety. My couch was well-positioned to use the hand menus too and once I got them down it was pretty easy. So, for menuing, very nice. But if the night was not literally Netflix and Chill, there was no point to not just using a controller. And for real, I wish they had stuck to all of their ill-fated guns regarding the Xbox One. I know must-have Kinect and always online functionality were poo-pooed by the populace, but so was a must-include hard drive for the 360 and them having to last-minute remove that was a sore spot in the development of games for that system whether you remember that debacle or not. Microsoft was so damn micro and soft when it came to making sweeping innovative changes, that if they'd actually just nutted up and did them, the PS5 and Series x wouldn't literally just be two flavors of same drink.

Dance Central is incredible and it was a huge hit at any house party I had. It was also extremely motivating as a workout routine. I would have a kinect again just for that one game alone.

I actually forgot why I had one of these. I remember playing a few game on it back in the day, then realizing there was an ambient internet connected camera in my bedroom at all times, and disconnecting it, never to use it again because it was ultimately a gimmick controller anyway …. seriously, until I saw this commercial I forgot owned one of these. I had an EyeToy too now that I think about it

It was actually capable of capturing facial expressions so that Microsoft could see how you reacted to things, in hopes they could sell that data to advertisers. It was truly a spy device. I thought people calling it that were conspiracy theorists. Boy was I wrong.

Matt! At the same time you got it, I also went down with a case of trigger finger (probably because Hollow Knight on Switch). I tried a lot of stuff but I think what got me a lot of relief was using a TENS-machine. One that uses electric impulses to stimulate your muscles. I hook up both my hands 🙌 and let it vibrate the muscles around thumb joints and I feel it helped a lot! I’m in the middle of creating my own gaming content and so I was pretty down because of the set back but I think this helped me to get back at it :) Hope it possibly helps you as well!

I feel like this was a missed opportunity for you guys to maybe showcase some cool ergonomic/adaptive controllers that are made for people with disabilities(not saying being too good at ps5 is a disability 😆)but idk it just feels weird to have a Kinect video out in 2022 when Xbox even has an "adaptive controller" as they put it. Still love you guys and think the vid was amazing and hope that the gamer thumb recovery goes quick!

As an engineer/developer who has been using versions of the Kinect in a number of robotics applications over the years, I can't be mad at the product; but MS have always had absolutely atrocious dev tools. Stuff like SDKs forcing you to build everything from the ground up from raw 2D image data is super frustrating. The Azure Kinect is a great piece of hardware, with some of the best available scanning fidelity and frame rates on the market for infrared based imagery; however MS being the corporate monolith they are, have left the software support at the SDK level completely stranded and pull a surprise pikachu face when they question as to why the adoption rates are so low. My take on the whole gaming use case was that MS were primarily accruing a massive data set of user poses to train the body tracking models. The modern NVIDIA CUDA body tracking capability is actually extremely robust in terms of maintaining pose estimations when people are partially occluded and even has some capacity to maintain user IDs when people walk in and out of frame entirely. I'm just glad it's paved the ways for companies like Stereolabs to come to the table and eat that particular lunch, as these smaller boutique companies regard spatial tracking as their bread and butter and do infinitely more to support the software stack underpinning these types of applications.

Motion controls are actually really good when done right example: aiming it’s really good at. But I do have to say the kinect was one step forward two steps back

It'll always be sad to me that Microsoft actually did have something kind of cool on their hands, which iterated on and could have even surpassed the Wii's motion control functionality, but decided to release their body-tracking peripheral without the part that tracked your body (the onboard processor). Turned a promising piece of kit into a, "Look, we can do it too!" scam like Sony's SixAxis. And then they did it again with WMR. I don't like seeing Facebook eating anyone's lunch, but MS kind of deserves it at this point.

So some VR headsets feature finger tracking, with some games that leverage this. Might be something to try while that hand is healing.

The Kinect was actually a blast. Especially for games like Just Dance and games like that. The action games were bad, but that wasn't really the kinects fault.
Ronnet 2 أشهر قبل
The kinect actually was cool tech. Most of the gestures worked. Problem was that none of the games were fun enough. So it was an expensive gimmick. But I do believe Microsoft thought it had the potential to change the industry. In hindsight that's rather sad but when you have many (failed) ideas on the pipeline I can see how you can have high expectations.

The only game I ever made it work for or enjoyed was Dance Central. I feel like after that it wasn’t supported or Xbox didn’t make the knowledge available to developers. That was the only game it ever worked for on my end 😂

Kinect was neat when it was first announced. Tried it once with Kinect Adventures and it was amsuing - but actual gameplay I'd play repeatedly? Nope. It ended up being voice controls only (which actually worked pretty good on the 360). I sold my Xbox One a few years back when I got an Xbox One X, and I don't miss the Kinect. I will say - it's neat to see makers use the sensors for stuff though.
