Kinect may be dead as a video gaming peripheral, but its technological uses live on. The latest example is in Sydney, where it’s being used to help control the speed and frequency of train boardings.
Kinect is alive again, sort of. Microsoft announced last fall it would no longer be manufacturing the Xbox peripheral, but now it’s back as...Project Kinect for Azure? The dev kit uses Kinect sensors and cloud computing to help people do new things with AI, like one day make Cortana for real.
