Microsoft’s Kinect is considered to be one of the most accurate motion capture devices around. And with Microsoft praising the Kinect hacks that have been floating around the internet, the Kinect’s power is growing everyday. However, the Kinect is being held back by it’s controller interface, the USB. The USB interface is limiting the amount of information that Kinect can stream into the Xbox. The 35 Megabytes support of data is not even delivering half of that, paralyzing the Kinect’s huge potential.
But not for long.. Microsoft is dropping the USB interface and cabling it straight to the hardware, so no more transit stops, just super fast transfer straight to the CPU or RAM. The next generation; Kinect or Kinect2, seems it will witness major performance enhancements like better motion sensor accuracy, better voice-recognition. This means that the device should create gameplay that is able to read the player’s emotions and tone, a great benefit for detective games such as L.A Noire.

What Is Xbox 360 Kinect?
Kinect is the new controller from Microsoft for the Xbox 360 gaming console, it is more of a peripheral than a controller that you can hold in your hand, it consists of a camera that uses infrared scanning to track you movements around a room transforming your body into a controller.
Kinect was formerly known as Project Natal and videos on the internet showed how advanced the camera is with facial recognition, gesture recognition and a very advanced UI.
You can watch videos showing some of the future titles that are going to be released for Kinect by checking out this post on CrunchGear.
Other goodies with Kinect include a microphone so you can talk to the 360, a separate menu system than you’ve known on the 360 and Skype-like chat software called “videokinect” to sweeten the deal.
