New Microsoft Patent Hints At Kinect 2.0
A patent by Microsoft, recently uncovered by the users of Neogaf has pointed to new features that appears to be for the next Kinect model along with the next Xbox home console.
"A multimedia entertainment system combines both gestures and voice commands to provide an enhanced control scheme. A user’s body position or motion may be recognized as a gesture, and may be used to provide context to recognize user generated sounds, such as speech input. Likewise, speech input may be recognized as a voice command, and may be used to provide context to recognize a body position or motion as a gesture.
Weights may be assigned to the inputs to facilitate processing. When a gesture is recognized, a limited set of voice commands associated with the recognized gesture are loaded for use. Further, additional sets of voice commands may be structured in a hierarchical manner such that speaking a voice command from one set of voice commands leads to the system loading a next set of voice commands."
