Voice Control and Kinect

April 16, 2011

Kinect has done well, both in sales and in pushing forward interactive and interesting uses for gaming technology. So it is with great interest that I read this article on how Rare (the developer) sees voice control as being key to the future of Kinect:

‘We have only scratched the surface in voice recognition’ says new studio boss
Kinect Sports studio Rare believes voice control will be instrumental in the future of Kinect games.
“We’re going to make using your voice much more front and centre – we’ve just scratched the surface on that,” Rare’s studio manager Scott Henson told MCV.

“The ability to say ‘Xbox Pause’ and it pauses is just the beginning. It’s magic, but it should be just like having a conversation moving forward.

“We’ll continue to advance and continue to make it better for both your body and your voice. I would say we’ve only scratched 10 per cent of the possibilities of what we can do with Kinect.”

There is also a PC SDK out for this – find out more here.
