It’s a sad day, we’ll sort of, Kinect is no more.
Yesterday Microsoft announced that the Kinect will no longer be manufactured. Despite selling 35 million of them it quickly got a bad reputation when it’s new version was bundled with the Xbox One.
Microsoft later reversed their decision and unbundled the camera from the Xbox One. It had promise, with the excellent Xbox Fitness and games like Just Dance and Kinect Sports Rivals allowed it to thrive.
Although Kinect is dead, it’s research and parts of its hardware live on through HoloLens and MS’s Hello cameras.
Will you miss it? Will you still continue to use it if you still have one?
Let us know!
