In a post on Windows Blog, Microsoft assures fans that they are getting closer and closer to bring the Kinect V2 to Windows and also has provided the first look at the new hardware.
As you can see in the picture above, the design is quite similar to the one available on the Xbox One except there is Kinect written on the top of the device.
The sensor will require a hub and the power supply to work. Hub has the ability to support three connections at the same time. It can support, sensor, USB 3.0 and power cables. The power supply will differ in different regions but it can support the voltages of 100-240 volts.
Just like the console version, Kinect for Windows features a color camera and noise-isolating multi microphones which will filter all the extra sounds in the area so that your voice has much more clarity.
The director of Kinect for Windows, Bob Heddle announced last year that they will be launching a new generation Kinect in 2014.
Just as the new Kinect sensor will bring opportunities for revolutionizing gaming and entertainment, the new Kinect for Windows sensor will revolutionize computing experiences.
Now that first look of the new Kinect for Windows v2 has been provided, you can expect a launch date to be revealed pretty soon.
