Microsoft no longer making Kinect for Windows sensors
Last year when Microsoft announced an adapter kit that would allow Kinect for Xbox One sensors to work with Windows, some wondered whether the company would cease making Kinect for Windows sensors.
On April 2, we learned that the answer is yes.
Starting today, Microsoft will no longer be making Kinect for Windows v2 sensors, officials announced in a blog post. The Kinect Adapter announced last year does allow users to connect a Kinect for Xbox One sensor — though not a Kinect for Xbox 360 sensor — to Windows 8.0 and 8.1 PCs and tablets.
