A Windows compatible version of the Xbox One Kinect sensor will be available as of the 15th of July, according to the Microsoft Online Store. Initially, the sensor is intended for developers looking to incorporate natural movement recognition, gestures and voice commands into their software applications.

The new sensor features a higher fidelity sensor with a 1080p camera, reduced latency, larger field of view, and better skeletal and finger tracking. As a result, we'll almost certainly see a number of unique applications for the new Kinect. The original Kinect sensor found utilisation in hospitals, enabling hands free computing while performing surgery.

The Kinect for Windows v2 sensor can be pre-ordered now for AUD$199.
