New 3d scanner!!! Oh, and there is a new x box.

Kotaku has details on the ways in which Kinect has been improved since the devices first release in 2010, take a look at the diagrams below.  I know some of the details on it are bothering some people (with apologies to gamers [those who are really funding this tool and allowing it to be mass produced] my interests lie beside the intended uses),  the possibilities as a scanning device are making me drool a little (ok, a lot).  Please, please, Microsoft, help this become a tool that is used in multiple fields… keep it as potentially open as the original Kinect (or more).  The results available from the original are pretty great, I have used it, and tested it out a bit, checking resolutions and details; but seeing these specs…
