Kinect for Xbox One cannot see through clothing, Microsoft has confirmed. The confirmation comes after a Microsoft Research video led to the suggestion that Kinect was capable of detecting details like seeing a person's genitalia. This is not true, Microsoft said.
"First, if you watch the video you will see that what is being represented here is a fold in the denim," a Microsoft representative told IGN. "There is no tech magic going on here and Kinect cannot see through clothing. Furthermore, the video was an illustration of the various camera views available for the creation of games and apps. This view is only accessible on a development kit and is not viewable on retail consoles."
Kinect for Xbox One, included with every system, is described as more precise, more responsive, and more intuitive than its predecessor, which is sold as a peripheral. Gamers can sign into the Xbox One via facial recognition and navigate through menus using voice and gesture controls.
