Kinect 2 image leaked - report

Source behind the recent Durango dev kit leak publishes image showing improved Kinect technology

The source of the recent Xbox Durango dev kit leak has released another image illustrating the refined Kinect technology's capabilities.

The anonymous source, known as "DaE", published the image on Twitter. It shows the Kinect detecting the outline of two users' clothing to a relatively high degree of detail, and is tracking one users' hand and fingers even as it passes in front of his body.

DaE leaked images of the Xbox Durango dev kit in July, when he attempted to sell it on a developer forum in what he later claimed was a joke.

Initially, it was thought to be a hoax, but Digital Foundry's Richard Leadbetter located DaE and subsequently confirmed that the images were, "the real deal."
