  1. Microsoft has been showing of it's new technology at CES, it is called "Xbox IllumiRoom". What it does is make your entire room part of the TV screen, your walls will show the content that breaches the edges of your TV and acts as an extension to your screen. More details below. Article and videos are from IGN. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHV4nclMdGc During Samsung’s keynote at CES today, Microsoft unveiled IllumiRoom, a new technology that turns the entire room around your TV into an extension of the screen. As explained on Microsoft’s official site, IllumiRoom uses Kinect and a projector “to blur the lines between on-screen content and the environment we live in allowing us to combine our virtual and physical worlds.” Microsoft explains that IllumiRoom “augments the area surrounding a television screen with projected visualizations to enhance the traditional living room entertainment experience” and “can change the appearance of the room, induce apparent motion, extend the field of view, and enable entirely new game experiences." Kinect captures the geometry of a room and adapts projected visuals “in real-time without any need to custom pre-process the graphics. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aoUGRGjG07E In a video demo shown off during Samsung’s keynote, Microsoft showed off several different applications of the technology, noting that the footage was “captured live and is not the result of any special effects added in post production.” IllumiRoom appears to be the realization of the immersive display experience Microsoft patented last year, which aimed to make gaming “more realistic” and eliminating “out of context images” that sit next to your TV. Whether or not IllumiRoom will tie-in with next Xbox or the next generation of Kinect remains to be seen, but Microsoft says more details will be revealed at the ACM SIGCHI Conference in Paris in April.
  2. Microsoft has begun taking applications to join a new development team to work within its Xbox division. This new development team seems to be primarily focused on dealing with systems relating to the Kinect and the enhancement thereof. After reading the full job listing one can come to the conclusion that Microsoft is looking for a strong team that can push the Kinect to its limits. Microsoft also seems to realize that the future of Xbox gaming may not lie in the Kinect as can be seen in this excerpt in the job listing: "If you want a comfortable, standard-role job at Microsoft with no ambiguity or risk, please don’t apply." Still, this listing implies Microsoft is looking to greatly enhance the experience provided by the Kinect. "But if you’re passionate about the potential for Kinect to continue to revolutionize entertainment and are a seasoned software engineer with the skills to prototype and build the future of premium Kinect-powered experiences, we have a growing team of talented people who want to take entertainment into the future." To read the full job listing, CLICK HERE. What do you think of this job listing? Should we expect to see another Kinect or more Kinect features in the future? Leave your thoughts in the comments below. Thanks for reading! SOURCE: MICROSFT CAREERS; IGN

  4. The new kinect sensor that will be coming with the Xbox One has another new cool feature up it's sleeve, it will have the ability to scan and redeem Xbox live codes by simply holding up the code card in view of the sensor and saying "Xbox use code" the sensor reads the QR code on the card and it is redeemed in a matter of seconds. It is now expected that all Xbox One game vouchers will come with a QR for this feature. Here we have Major Nelson doing a quick demonstration. https://vine.co/v/hIAEZuQp5MK

  6. In Halo 4, the player cards are pretty cool. With the campion DLC adding in a ton more stances, it got me thinking. What if in Halo 5, using the same player card mechanic, a player could customize their stance using Kinect? That would allow for much more personal player cards and people wouldn't complain about not liking the available ones. Maybe put a few default stances in there and have the custom unlocked after a certain level. But what if it gets inappropriate? What's the worst that someone could do? Flip the bird? That brings me to my second part. After (or before) setting the pose for the Spartan, a player could edit the hands. The thumb and index finger could be able to move freely, while the remaining fingers could be locked together. That way a player could point, thumbs up, make a fist, high five, and more. Plus no middle finger. But what if you want your Spartan to have a gun? They should be unlocked by commendations. Hold your gun proud because you worked for it! If you snipe, you'll get a sniper. Play Grifball, get a hammer. Or, if you master Capture the Flag, maybe you could get a flag? And if 343i wants to put this in the game, all I'm asking for is a early copy ;P
  7. I think kinect can actually be integrated into halo 5. If used in the right way. Kinect in multiplayer: In multiplayer the kinect could be used in different ways. Like if your in close combat a flick of the elbow would be a melee much faster than pressing a button and you could use the other hand to melee instead of pausing right after you hit someone. You could switch to full kinect mode where you move your hand in a gunning motion to shoot a fist or elbow for melee, and run for sprint.To scope you tell the kinect zoom in, but the kinect would have auto aim but would descope to balance. Of course you can stay traditional and use a controller. Kinect in Forge: In forge voice commands can be used for quicker forging. For example you say "Kinect put bunker. Add stairs down to the left. Make equal." simple commands can be use to place object. Weapons can be placed faster with the kinect. "kinect place 5 fuel rods." I can see real potential with the kinect.
  8. In a recent interview with Microsoft's Marc Whitten hosted by IGN we found out that the Xbox One will no longer to to be plugged in for it to function. After being asked if the console will work without it Marc Witten replied "like online, the console will still function if Kinect isn't plugged in, although you won't be able to use any feature or experience that explicitly used the sensor." The kinect will still be bundled with every Xbox One which helps cause the price of the Xbox one to be a bit hefty, this has concerned some fans that they feel that they have to pay for something they don't want and won't use. But this news could bring some relief to them as later down the road they could sell their Kinect sensor if they have no desire to use any of the features that require it and getting money back on it.
  9. Your Kinect can read your mind! Eye tracking is one of the most fascinating technologies. You can select items just by looking at them, you can control games and even your browser will automatically scroll adjusted to your reading. It feels like the computer is reading your mind and once you use it, you will never want to miss it again. Eye tracking usually requires expensive IR technology, but with a little twist and the NUIA eyeCharm your Kinect can be upgraded to an eye tracker. The eyeCharm is an hardware add-on for the Kinect and we have just launched it in a Kickstarter project. You can find all the details and how it works at the project page at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/4tiitoo/nuia-eyecharm-kinect-to-eye-tracking. We hope it is OK that we posted here directly. To kickstart we need to spread the word quickly and we honestly believe you guys will love the idea. If you like this, help us spreading the word. If you want to experience the magic of eye tracking yourself, back the project Thank you for your time - we sincerely hope you like what we do. Production Plan Alpha Release NUIA Core & SDK: Dec 19, 2012 Product Design: Feb 8, 2013 Pre-Production run and QA testing: June 3, 2013 Initial Production run with 100 devices: June 17, 2013 Start of Production run of all devices: June 27, 2013 Beta Release NUIA Core & SDK with closed beta testing: July 5, 2013 Finale Release NUIA Core & SDK and shipping to customer: August 1, 2013 Your 4tiitoo team

  11. Apparently Xbox World Magazine couln't keep their trap shut and this is the result! We have been waiting a looooong time for this to get even a sliver of information on this and here it is! Simply called "Xbox" the console has: 8Gb of ram quad core processor BLU-RAY!!!! Head mounted augmented reality device? Kinect 2.0 (Hand tracking) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bGhkD22L7FQ Will you be getting this and what do you think of this? Articlify this Archangel!
  12. Okay i hope 343 saw my other great idea thread about the machinima hopefully i put the thread on the right topic thingy but i must say this is my number 3 idea for halo 4 if they ever make halo 4 and give it a kinect setting i was thinking about this to up the halo creativity cause i have a wild imagination so tell me if you like this idea i recall bungie showing a vid for a part where the animation copied how the human moved when he was acting as a marine getting off a pelican in halo reach with the turret so i was thinking to help the halo experience this is a little part for connect nothing to big but maybe they could design it to where when the human moves so does the spartan in real time so they can give a section where you can create your own assassinations and you can use a second friend as the dummy spartan so you can make your own cool customization of assassinations and of course it will have a time limit on how long you perform the assassination so do you guys think this is a great and fun idea for online customization? so you can freely show off an attack you created?
  13. 2 new ideas that popped in my head: 1. I read a post about implimenting a more in depth character customization similar to whats in saints row with your face. Well my idea is taking a picture uploading it to 343's site, or through an xbox camera...etc And having that face be implemented on your character in multiplayer. 2. Halo 4 for Kinect?
  14. As I looked, nobody mentioned it will or will not be on Kinect. So, anyone think it will be for Kinect?
  15. I was going to post this in the 'Gaming News' panel, but it wouldn't let me. So sorry if this is in the wrong place :/ Below I have listed what I have found about the new Xbox 360, and will continue to update it if I learn any more information: The first is from winrumors.com, was posted on Nov. 22nd, and has quots from Microsoft's Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter: Article Another was posted on Oct. 20th and is from Xbox.IGN.com: Article The last I've found is from Gamespot.com and was posted on November 9th with sources fromThe Windows Weekly Podcast: Article I don't know how I feel about having to buy another console, if it's worth it, and if it will be a good change or not, but hope it's a change for the better rather than a change that people don't want. Just thought I'd share my find with everyone. Thanks, @RANMAN10
  16. One of my favorite features in Halo: Reach is the assassination system. I loved how every angle you come from decides which assassination you will do and soo forth. I have an idea that can make this feature even better in Halo 4. If we can actually use Kinect to make and design our own assassinations that would be amazing. Using the motion of your body you can make your own assassinations and takedowns. Also they should make them soo that you can save each as a file on your fileshare. You can chose whether it is a spartan assassination or an elite. Also you can use your voice to decide which strike or stab actually kills the player or whether you use the knife or whether you take their weapon or knife and kill them with it. Saying things like "Die!", "Unsheathe Knife" of "Fire!!" can trigger these things. I know a lot I would make. One I would tap the enemy on the left shoulder and as he look over his left shoulder I would move to the right and in front of him. Then I would unsheathe my knife and as he looks back I'd get him good right in the face. Also you you want to chose which weapon you want you can say the name then it can either pop up on your back or in your hands. It's just crazy all of the different animated assassinations and animations you can make in this game if they add this feature. Sooo what I want you to do is please vote and then comment below what you think about it and if you agree what kind of assassinations you would make.
  17. i saw that you can view character models with it. i dont own one. can i still do this without it?
