Kinect contributions

Over the last few months, I’ve published a series of feature stories to outline the contributions Microsoft Research has made to the groundbreaking Kinect for Xbox 360 product, which Guinness World Records has dubbed the fastest-selling consumer electronic device ever.

This week, the Kinect team is marking the one-year anniversary of Kinect. With that in mind, I offer this compendium of articles that outline the contributions Microsoft Research has made to the product, involving researchers from Microsoft Research RedmondMicrosoft Research AsiaMicrosoft Research Cambridge, and Microsoft Research Silicon Valley:

“The incredible partnership between the Kinect team and Microsoft Research,” says Alex Kipman, general manager for Incubation for Microsoft’s Interactive Entertainment Business, “has allowed us to make tomorrow happen today.”
