Gaming tech is getting to be quite component dense. What an interesting device. Underused in the XBOX ONE for sure. Luckily.. there is a Windows Kinect 2.0 on the way. The time delay is still too slow for my liking.

Hey, hey, something put together with screws!
 
Honestly, when you look at the packaging, there is no way something like this could be designed quickly without the aid of 3D modeling.  There are far too many components fitting together in so many complicated ways.  We really need to appreciate the difficulty in designing a package like this.

I was somewhat amused at the model number -- 1520.  That was the model of the disk drive accessory for the Commodore 64.  The connection between those two disparate products and companies is pretty weak, but I wonder if someone on the Micro$oft team is smiling to himself at the homage.

Nice to get an inside look at Kinect. I'm sure we'll be seeing more of this at CES next month.

Well, another enthuastic teardown slideshow.  These guys have way too much fun. 

It is interesting to see what goes in to one of these.  The Kinect is a great idea, using vision technology to control a system.

With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
The Industrial Internet of Things is bringing a previously reluctant process industry into the wireless fold. The ability to connect smart sensors to the Internet has spiked the demand for wireless devices in process manufacturing, according to the new study from ARC Advisory Group.
If you’re developing an embedded monitoring and control application, then you’ll want to take note of the upcoming Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Embedded Development Using Microchip Microcontrollers and the CCS C Compiler."
