Kinect for Windows
Microsoft has confirmed that Kinect 2 will be coming to Windows PCs soon after Xbox One is released.

This is an essential step in Microsoft's strategic plan to expand Kinect's use to business and other groups aside from gamers.

"We're continuing our commitment to equipping businesses and organizations with the latest natural technology from Microsoft so that they, in turn, can develop and deploy innovative touch-free applications for their businesses and customers," Kinect for Windows director Bob Heddle wrote on Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN).
"Both the new Kinect sensor and the new Kinect for Windows sensor are being built on a shared set of technologies. The precision and intuitive responsiveness that the new platform provides will accelerate the development of voice and gesture experiences on computers."

Kinect 2 is able to detect subtle hand and finger movements thanks to its updated 1080p camera and infrared sensor. Microsoft will show off more about it at the BUILD 2013 conference in June.
