Microsoft’s Kinect sensor may soon be integrated into a TV or laptop. In Microsoft Forum held this week, Craig Mundie, Senior Advisor of the President revealed Kinect’s development direction.
Mundie said that Microsoft’s R&D objective is to miniaturization the Kinect. “Price as low as possible, and the size as small as possible,” he explained, “I wish to put Kinect into this Surface border.” When asked whether we would see a built-in Kinect laptop recently, Mundie said he believed that such product would eventually come out, but not that soon.
In the new vision center, Microsoft integrates the Kinect sensor into a series of displays. It seems the sensor size is smaller than the market’s, but Microsoft refused to disclose whether they are producing the Kinect 2.
Microsoft is trying to have the Kinect integrated into the device, but Mundie thinks that there are many challenges to bring this technology to the tablet/laptop. First, the Kinect sensor can’t work in the daylight. Because the sun is a giant infrared light source, which will submerge the Kinect infrared.
Definitely, Microsoft even encounters numerous challenges to bring Kinect directly into some other equipment. However, the business s Kinect for Windows performances they are searching for extra use system. The previous rumors advertised that Microsoft is cooperating with Asus to develop a laptop with built-in  Kinect, but this kind of product has not however appeared.
