Launched in 2010, the Kinect is a motion sensor that allows players to control their games using gestures, movements and spoken commands. It was an attempt to capitalise on the popularity of motion-controlled gaming, which was introduced to a wider audience by the hugely successful Nintendo Wii.
Early reception to the Kinect was positive, with the innovative technology and unique gaming experience widely praised. With 8 million units sold in just 60 days, the Kinect claimed the Guinness World Record for ‘fastest selling consumer electronics device’.
Unfortunately, the Kinect has suffered from numerous issues since then. The popularity of the original Kinect for Xbox 360 was dented by a series of poor games, while privacy concerns emerged when Microsoft bundled the Kinect with the Xbox One.
