The first version of the Kinect for Windows has proved amazingly popular since its initial release, with owners using it for a wide range of applications, such as unique motion tracking and facial recognition. Despite this, Microsoft has revealed that it is officially discontinuing the original Kinect, as the company will stop offering the Windows device once the current stock runs out. As such, users who are interested in the capabilities of the original Kinect for Windows, or who rely on the device for various needs, are being urged by Microsoft to buy as many as they require as quickly as possible. Fortunately, the latest generation Kinect, which is available for $199, provides a wealth of improvements over the original Kinect for Windows, such as enhanced body tracking, greater depth fidelity, full 1080p high-definition video, new active infrared capabilities, and an expanded field of view.
