Kinect is one of the most successful tools developer by Microsoft. It understand not only the voice commands adequately but also lets you give instructions through your motions. It is so good, in fact, that some researchers are using it professionally in the robots. Apparently, Microsoft knows how awesome Kinect is and has now announced that it will be releasing Kinect for Windows on February 1. Once it is out, you may be able to control your PC through motion and voice commands.


According to Microsoft’s CEO, Steve Ballmer, Kinect has been a huge success so far. In the holiday season alone, about 18 million units of Kinect were sold. Although Kinect was originally developed as a gaming tool, to allow the Xbox 360 users to control their gaming device through voice and motion commands, now Microsoft wants Kinect to be a part of everything it produces. And truly, Kinect has that potential.

It gave a presentation to demonstrate the powers of Kinect. The demonstration included showing Sesama street, part video and part game. And it depicted how Kinect can be used to interact with an OS very successfully. Microsoft now wants Kinect to be a part of the PC experience, allowing people to control their PC through voice and motion commands.

Microsoft’s CEO, Steve Ballmer made this announcement at CES 2012. Initially, Kinect will be available for $249.99 in twelve countries. These countries include United States, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Japan, New Zealanad, Australia, UK, Canada, France and Ireland. Microsoft is now also encouraging apps developed on Kinect and aims to move towards a future where Windows 7 and Windows 8 support voice and motion commands of Kinect.

If you want to make a purchase of Kinect right-away, here’s the place to start.
