E3 2013 - The demo given today, a Microsoft employee demonstrated how the new Kinect really stepped up the game when it comes to movement tracking technology. He went on to show off the cameras abilities with a 1080p full-color feed as well as what Microsoft is calling "Active IR", in which the Kinect sensor uses infrared light to enable you to play games using the sensor even at night time with the lights turned off.



The demo went on to display some high-definition skeletal renderings which could be used to control in game characters, participate in online exercise programs, and much more. During workout routines the Kinect would be able to demonstrate which muscles are getting the most workout as well as which positions offer specific body types the best workout.
