Kinect 2 specs surface on the Internet

Xbox 720 is still far away but the specs of the Kinect 2 – an optical add-on for the upcoming Xbox 720 gaming console have arrived on the Internet.

Of course not everything has become known but the Kinect 2 will come with support for USB 3.0 and will have a 16 YUV camera at Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) for sure. Depth stream will also be increased from 320 x 240 pixels to 512 x 424 pixels.

The Kinect 2 will come with a new infrared sensor and will be able to recognize up to 6 people in a single frame at once as well as voice commands. The device will also follow the gamer’s mood – if the person playing on the Xbox 720 is happy Kinect 2 will try to keep them happy; if not the add-on device will lower the game difficulty in order to make the gamer happier.

Rumors say that every Xbox 720 gaming console will come with Kinect 2 but this remains to be seen.
