昨天的新闻!

Thousands of developers are participating in Kinect for Windows v2 Developer Preview—starting today

In addition to being a great day for Xbox One, today is also a great day for Kinect for Windows. We have started delivering Kinect for Windows v2 Developer Preview kits to program participants. The Developer Preview includes a pre-release Kinect for Windows v2 sensor, access to the new generation Kinect for Windows software development kit (SDK), as well as ongoing updates and access to private program forums. Participants will also receive a Kinect for Windows v2 sensor when they become available next summer (northern hemisphere).【2014年暑假,正式版才能出现,应该是截止日期,不过微软一向喜欢精益求精,超出几天也可能。】

Microsoft is committed to making the Kinect for Windows sensor and SDK available early to qualifying developers and designers so they can prepare to have their new-generation applications ready in time for general availability next summer. We continue to see a groundswell for Kinect for Windows. We received thousands of applications for this program and selected participants based on the applicants’ expertise, passion, and the raw creativity of their ideas. We are impressed by the caliber of the applications we received and look forward to seeing the innovative NUI experiences our Developer Preview customers will create.

The new Kinect for Windows v2 sensor will feature the core capabilities of the new Kinect for Xbox One sensor. With the first version of Kinect for Xbox 360, developers and businesses saw the potential to apply the technology beyond gaming—in many different computing environments. Microsoft believes that the opportunities for revolutionizing computing experiences will be even greater with this new sensor. The benefits will raise the bar and accelerate the development of NUI applications across multiple industries, from retail and manufacturing to healthcare, education, communications, and more:

Real Vision
Kinect Real Vision technology dramatically expands its field of view for greater line of sight. An all-new active IR camera enables it to see in the dark. And by using advanced three-dimensional geometry, it can even tell if you’re standing off balance.

Real Motion
Kinect Real Motion technology tracks even the slightest gestures. So a simple squeeze of your hand results in precise control over an application, whether you’re standing up or sitting down.

Real Voice
Kinect Real Voice technology focuses on the sounds that matter. Thanks to an all-new multi-microphone array, the advanced noise isolation capability lets the sensor know who to listen to, even in a crowded space.

2014 will be exciting, to say the least. We will keep you updated as the Developer Preview program evolves and we get closer to the Kinect for Windows v2 worldwide launch next summer. Additionally, follow the progress of the early adopter community by keeping an eye on them (#k4wdev) and by following us (@kinectwindows).

数以千计的开发人员正在参与第二代 KINECT FOR WINDOWS 开发者预览版—从今天开始

除了对于 Xbox One 发布是个重要的日子之外,今天,对于 Kinect for Windows 来说也是个值得欣喜雀跃的日子。我们已经开始向参加“第二代 Kinect for Windows 开发者预览版”项目的参与者交付第二代 Kinect for Windows 开发者预览包。开发者预览版包括预先发布的第二代 Kinect for Windows 传感器,新一代 Kinect for Windows 软件开发工具包(SDK),以及持续的更新和访问私人项目论坛。参与者还将获得明年夏季(北半球时间)正式推出的第二代 Kinect for Windows 传感器。

数以千计的开发人员正在参与第二代 Kinect for Windows 开发者预览版

微软致力于为合格的开发者和设计人员更早提供 Windows for Kinect 传感器和 SDK,以便他们能够为明年夏天的产品推出及时开发出新一代的应用程序。我们再次见证了 Kinect for Windows 引发的狂潮,在“第二代 Kinect for Windows 开发者预览版”项目中,我们收到了数以千计的申请,并基于申请者的专业知识、热情和原创性想法对参与者进行了甄选。申请者的水准给我们留下了深刻的印象,我们期待看到开发者预览版为客户打造创新的 NUI 体验。新一代 Kinect for Windows 传感器将采用最新 Kinect for Xbox One 传感器的核心功能。利用 Kinect for Xbox 360 的第一个版本,开发者和企业看到了该应用程序在游戏以外领域的不同计算机环境下的技术应用潜能。微软相信新的传感器将带来计算机领域革命性的使用体验,此外,还将加速NUI应用程序跨行业开发,涵盖从零售业和制造业到医疗、教育、通信等不同领域。

真实的视觉体验

Kinect 真实视觉技术极大地扩大了视野范围。全新灵活的红外相机可以在黑暗环境下捕捉影像。利用先进的三维几何甚至可以判定人体平衡情况。

真实的体感

Kinect 真实体感技术可以追踪及其轻微的姿势。无论你是站立还是坐着,即使你手部一个简单的挤压动作都会被应用程序精确控制。

真实的声音

Kinect 真实声音技术体现在关键声音的控制方面。利用全新的多麦克风阵列,先进的高级噪音隔离功能,即使你在嘈杂的环境,也能够让传感器聆听准确的声音。

2014 年将会是令人兴奋的。我们将即时通知各位开发人员预览计划的发展,我们距离明年夏天第二代 Kinect for Windows 全球发布的时间也越来越近了。

也就是说,正式版本7个月后才能到来,在此期间只有少数人能拿到前线预览版(我已经下载到了预览版的SDK,根据微软要求不能分发给大家。但是硬件购买信息还未收到,过二天应该会有消息。)

我将研究下最新的SDK,近期更新相应的博客。
