Microsoft is reportedly developing 4K webcams for Windows 10, and “at least one” will support Xbox One.
According to Thurrot.com (thanks, TechRadar), Microsoft is developing “several” models complete with integrated Windows Hello functionality – a first, if Microsoft is able to offer the feature in a separate peripheral – so you’ll be able to sign into your Xbox One using facial recognition, just like Kinect. Reports suggest some may offer 4K resolution, too.
A webcam wouldn’t necessarily act as a viable replacement to the now-defunct Kinect as it’s unlikely to offer the depth perception needed, but it might enable players to use the many other apps and functions such as Skype and facial recognition that quietly went away when Microsoft stopped producing its motion-controlled device.
