Leaked Kinect 2 Image Reveals Improved Depth Sensor
The image was uploaded to Twitter (see below) and there's a question as to its legitimacy. However, some reports indicate its the real deal, plucked straight from Microsoft's Durango Xbox Development Kit (XDK).

If the picture is genuine, then it bodes well for the next generation Kinect. Compared to the first generation motion camera, the Kinect 2 image shows much improved detail and depth recognition, which could pave the way to better gameplay. The Kinect 2 is supposed to be able to do a better job at detecting subtle movements, and based on the leaked image, it certainly looks like that will be the case.
