First Image of Kinect v2 For Windows Revealed, "Looks Similar To Xbox One Kinect", Launch Soon
Today, Microsoft has shared first image of Kinect v2 for Windows. The upgrade version looks pretty similar to the one that comes with Microsoft's next-gen Xbox console, Xbox One.
The only noticeable difference is that Xbox Logo on Power button has been replaced with "Understated" power logo.
"The sensor closely resembles the Kinect for Xbox One, except that it says “Kinect” on the top panel, and the Xbox Nexus—the stylized green “x”—has been changed to a simple, more understated power indicator:
The sensor requires a couple other components to work: the hub and the power supply. Tying everything together is the hub (top item pictured below), which accepts three connections: the sensor, USB 3.0 output to PC, and power. The power supply (bottom item pictured below) does just what its name implies: it supplies all the power the sensor requires to operate. The power cables will vary by country or region, but the power supply itself supports voltages from 100–240 volts."
About Kinect v2 for Windows launch, Microsoft says: "As this first look at the Kinect for Windows v2 hardware indicates, we're getting closer and closer to launch."
