Microsoft has pretty big agenda planned for Kinect than we thought. A day before Microsoft announced that Kinect hardware specially designed for Windows PC’s is coming early next year. Now The Daily reports that, according to their sources Microsoft is planning to integrate Kinect in to next generation of TV’s. They are even in talks with manufacturers like Sony, Vizio, etc.
Microsoft is planning to integrate its Kinect motion sensor into next-generation television sets, The Daily has learned.
Sources familiar with the subject told The Daily that the tech giant wants to aggressively push the Kinect into as many living rooms as possible, even those without its Xbox 360 gaming systems. Microsoft is said to be in the early stages of licensing its Kinect technology to television hardware manufacturers like Vizio and Sony.
If this turns out to be true, Kinect will become more and more mainstream opening up the possibilities of lots of NUI scenarios. Because people will buy TV with Kinect than TV and Kinect.
