Kinect Voice Control Vital to Sensor's Future, says Rare Boss

Xbox, show the future
The list of Kinect voice commands is quite small for now, but Rare studio manager Scott Henson believes the sensor's vocal capabilities will improve vastly over time.
We’re going to make using your voice much more front and centre – we’ve just scratched the surface on that. The ability to say ‘Xbox Pause’ and it pauses is just the beginning. It’s magic, but it should be just like having a conversation moving forward. We’ll continue to advance and continue to make it better for both your body and your voice. I would say we’ve only scratched 10 per cent of the possibilities of what we can do with Kinect.
Would you fancy having a conversation with your Xbox 360? Do you think it would be a bit one-sided, or do you see this as another step towards Star Trek-level technology? Join the discussion in our comments section below.
