New Microsoft Kinect Measures Heartbeat

The new Xbox One gaming system from Microsoft is equipped with an updated Kinect camera, which has improved sensors for detecting heartbeat. Using changes in the user’s skin color, the system is able to accurately detect how quickly his/her heart is beating. With the improved sensitivity of the system, the technology may be further used in healthcare and telehealth. Previous uses have included providing augmented reality in operating rooms, improving workouts for rehabilitation, and correctly estimating body size and radiation dosage.
