MS donates 2,500 Kinects to FIRST

October 8, 2011

The Kinect sensor will be a valuable enhancement to the FIRST robot competition experience. Teams will be able to either program their robots to respond to their own custom gestures, or use default code and gestures.
The Kinect sensor includes a depth camera and both video and audio sensors to capture video data in 3D.
During the 2011 F.I.R.S.T. season, 2,072 teams totaling 51,800 students competed at 59 events in the U.S., Canada, and Israel.
