The ASUS equivalent to Kinect finally released

/ 7 years ago

Earlier at this years Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas ASUS revealed a prototype version of their Xtion Pro. Which is essentially a device that uses infrared radiation, a camera and a microphone to detect movement and sounds in a way similar to Kinect which allows users to interact except this time not with an Xbox 360 but a Linux or Windows PC system.

After 6 months of waiting the Xtion Pro will market at around $300 and will be available shortly and apparently has a more advanced “SomatoSensory” system than the Microsoft Kinect model. However, it doesn’t look like ASUS is trying to compete with Microsoft since Microsoft’s Kinect is exclusively an Xbox 360 product and this new ASUS Xtion Pro is targetting the desktop/laptop computer market.

    What part is not true mate? It just states this is for PC, whereas the Kinect is for Xbox but has PC capability now.
