Rumour: Kinect 2 Capable of Reading Lips and Emotions

Project Skynet commences
Anonymous sources have apparently told Eurogamer Kinect 2 is capable of lip reading, and can detect emotion in the user's voice. Eurogamer also claims the next Kinect can "determine in which direction [users] are facing," which sounds like something the current Kinect can do, unless we're missing something.
We already know that Kinect is limited by Xbox 360's USB bandwidth, so this increased accuracy could be offered by something as simple as a faster USB connection.
What do you think Kinect 2 will offer over and above its current incarnation?
