We have previously heard a rumor that Microsoft is working on a new version of the Microsoft Kinect, which is expected to launch some time in early 2012, and there will be a version for the Xbox and also a separate version for the PC.
Now according to a recent report by Eurogamer, who have been talking to a number of developers, the Kinect 2 will be so accurate that it will be capable of lip reading.
One development source told Eurogamer that Kinect 2 will be so powerful it will enable games to lip read, detect when players are angry, and determine in which direction they are facing.
Kinect 2 can track the pitch and volume of player voices and facial characteristics to measure different emotional state.
We dont as yet have any details on when Microsoft will launch their second generation Kinect, although we suspect it will probably be at the same time as they launch the new Xbox console, but this has been rumored to launch in 2013.
