Microsoft has shown off the final design of its version of the Xbox One Kinect sensor that will function on Windows PCs.

Unsurprisingly, it is virtually identical to its console brother--the insides are the same, and two small aesthetic tweaks have seen the Xbox symbol replaced with a power indicator and a Kinect label added to the top.

The device also comes with its own hub and power supply, with the former connecting together the sensor, USB 3.0 output, and power.

Microsoft is still yet to formally announced the price and release date of the Kinect for Windows V2, but said "we getting closer and closer to launch" in a blog post. The company has previously said the device will launch before summer 2014.
