Microsoft releases images of Kinect for Windows v2 hardware

Microsoft has released images of Kinect for Windows v2, which is scheduled to launch this summer.

According to a Kinect blog post, while the second-generation Kinect for Windows sensor closely resembles the Kinect for Xbox One, it features the word ‘Kinect’ on the top panel. In addition, the stylised green ‘X’ has been replaced by a simple power indicator.

The sensor’s hub features three connection points; one for the sensor, another for USB 3.0 output to PC, and one for the power cable.

Last summer, Microsoft launched its closed Kinect for Windows v2 developer programme, giving developers the opportunity to use an alpha version of the sensor hardware, along with early access to the software development kit. Programme participants will also receive the final version of the Kinect for Windows v2 hardware at no additional cost.
