Motion electronics is always intriguing to people and Microsoft has caught on to this with their Kinect; first used with the xbox 360. Up until now that sensor bar has been exclusive to the 360 but they are now opening this technology up to PC! MS has announced the prospective release to be scheduled for sometime later this summer!
As Redmond tells it, this self-publishing will happen "later this summer." Next summer (notice a theme here?), Microsoft is adding support for one of gaming's most pervasive dev toolkits to Kinect for Windows: the Unity engine -- tools developers already know the strengths and weaknesses of, which should bolster the app selection even further. Given that the Xbox One will see Unity support this year, this could mean that cross-platform apps and games are a distinct possibility. Or, maybe we'll get a cool new bank account manager instead.”
