topic and prompt
will microsoftâs new kinect become a mainstream medical device? Microsoft recently launched its second version of the kinect, its motion capturing camera peripheral, for windows pcs. The new device, which is technically identical to the xbox one version launched last november, features better tracking accuracy than the original kinect, can track up to six bodies, and uses a fisheye lens which can detect users when they stand closer to the device.
During an interview at mobihealthnews, spencer hutchins, ceo of digital physical therapy start-up reflexion health, noted that the new kinect's tracking accuracy "unlocks a number of clinical use cases in which precision is important." indeed, the new kinect has already tickled the fancy of health care companies for nearly a year, after microsoft allowed certain companies to experiment with the prototypes.
The microsoft kinect began as an alternate controller for the companyâs xbox 360 game console, but developers have recognized that the motion sensing camera has huge potential for many industries â including, increasingly, healthcare. The new kinect, the second generation of microsoftâs motion capture camera technology, has been making healthcare headlines for nearly a year now as a few select companies were able to tinker with prototypes. The version of the device that was connected to the xbox one gaming console was made available back in november. But kinect for windows version 2 will be available commercially, complete with a software development kit (sdk) for developers.
What are your thoughts about the potential uses for the kinect in the medical device industry?
