It's serious pinch of salt time, folks. After claiming to be in possession of a 'Durango' (next-generation Xbox) dev kit, the somewhat mysterious ex-sysadmin DaE has posted a picture of what could be Kinect 2's high-resolution body mapping in action - courtesy of one of the development toolkits.
Kinect 2 is rumoured to launch alongside the next-generation Xbox as a core part of the experience, boasting higher-fidelity body scanning, gesture recognition and detail when it comes to finger and face tracking. This certainly seems to be borne out by the leaked image, which appears to map individual fingers on each hand even when held in front of the head or body.
The veracity of both the source and the image have yet to be proven. We'll know the truth of things when the next console generation arrives, which is heavily rumoured to be holiday season 2013.
