According to some new job listings posted by Microsoft, which were spotted by BetaNews, the company is apparently looking to expand its current Kinect team. According to the listing, Microsoft wants to “push the envelope of today’s and tomorrow’s technology as we explore new ideas from the ground floor.”
Microsoft is expanding its Kinect team in order to push the boundaries of what is possible with motion sensor technology. The Redmond-based firm posted a job listing online, hinting at some of the innovative features likely to be included in later versions of Kinect. The job post, which is looking for a senior software engineer, was posted early last week. “A new team has formed in Microsoft’s Xbox division with a specific purpose: to push the envelope of today’s and tomorrow’s technology as we explore new ideas from the ground floor”, the listing read. “It begins with veterans from Xbox 360, Xbox LIVE, and Kinect. But we’re growing as quickly as our imaginations can be translated into code”.
