The Kinect is "now so sensitive that it can measure your pulse by monitoring pigmentation change in your face."
Yowza, that is one ugly piece of kit. I was legitimately expecting better from Microsoft.
Ugly in what way? Compared to what?
I think ugly is too harsh a word for it. It's not really bad looking, just kinda generic. It's very like a DVR but with half of the casing replaced with vents. Still looks better than the last Xbox though, that one both looked and felt cheap. This one at least looks expensive and powerful which I guess is what they're trying to communicate.
"You can just say 'Xbox, watch Travel Channel' or 'Xbox, watch Sons of Anarchy,' and you’re there."
