Xbox Kinect sensor goes X-rated: Device is revealed to detect every part of the anatomy - even parts you might want to keep covered

The sensor highlights a man's package when it is in topographical mode
It was spotted by Mark Wilson of Fastco Design when testing the sensor

The Xbox Kinect has proven to be extremely good at recognising the human body.

Only last week, a group of Japanese researchers used the sensor to create a device that can translate sign language.

Now one writer has discovered that Kinect can see human anatomy far better than first thought.

Perhaps, a bit too well.

No it can't.

Mr Wilson noted that the Kinect hardware/software was so effective at distinguishing the bumps and folds of clothing that it could pinpoint a man’s package.

Being at a high enough resolution to show a dick in tight clothes is not the same as seeing through clothes.

That video was actually pretty cool. The new Kinect looks way better than the old one. I know people like to hate on the Kinect, but it is kinda cool as a UI and for a few games here and there.
