Kinect and 3D Audio

Gizmodo (via Patent Office) have noticed that Microsoft have filed for an 8 speaker array to be used in combination with their game console ‘xbox kinect’ system.

There is a lot of research out there in relating technology such as head-tracking and movement tracking being used to pan and control audio, specifically using hacked versions of Wii controls and Kinect.

It’s very interesting that Microsoft are taking these hacks and publications on board to be patenting their newest inventions.
