By now, you’ve probably heard about all of the new features for Xbox One’s Kinect 2.0. 1080pHD / Infrared Camera to see in Dark / Read Heartbeat / Gestures / Mic and Siri Like Voice operator coming.  And while a lot has been made about Kinects sinister side (Spybox). Not a lot has been mentioned about how these new features could revolutionize gaming. And I’m not talking at all about voice or motion controls.

In this video, I cover some ideas as to how this technology could change the way we interact with games. Imagine playing a game that doesn’t have a Easy / Medium/ Hard difficulty. What if the difficulty was customized to you – because the game could recognize when you’re stressing out and reached your stress peak. What if a horror game could learn what elements in the game are scaring you – and learn which ones are just annoying.  There are a number of different implementations that are plausible.

Do you think Kinect 2.0 could revolutionize gaming?
