Xbox One Kinect Named to Best of What's New 2013

Popular Science magazine has named the Kinect one of the Best of What's New products in the Entertainment category.

Popular Science has released their "Best of What's New" awards for 2013. Without having launched yet, the Kinect for Xbox One has already been named to the Entertainment category. The new motion-sensing camera was praised by Popular Science as being "10 times as accurate as its predecessor."

Other aspects of the Kinect that they found intriguing is the body tracking in any lighting condition. The Kinect is also known to interpret and map movement at a skeletal and muscular level.

This is not the first award the yet-to-be released Xbox One has received this year from Popular Mechanics. The Xbox One received the title of one of the top "breakthrough" products for 2013. In Popular Mechanics words, the One is "one of the most innovative and transformative products of the year."

Other products in the Entertainment category for "Best of What's New" include:

  • Oculus Rift
  • Google Chromecast
  • NVidia Shield

Xbox is slated to be released this Friday, November 22, in the US for $499 and includes the award-winning Kinect.

    Another great catch. A good read too. I hope the Oculus Rift wins though.
