With Kinect, the customer is the controller, and now there are more ways than ever for customers to connect a satisfying retail experience with that technology in those stores. Take the example in the video above: Being able to try on clothes without taking any off. I don’t know about you, but I hate the hassle of waiting in the fitting room line, so this really appeals to the clothing consumer in me.
It’s just one of three videos the Kinect for Windows team has created to show how easy it is to use Kinect to attract customers and engage them in new ways. As the Kinect for Windows Blog reports, after conducting “extensive first-hand research with dozens of retailers and big brands,” Microsoft “learned how retailers think about implementing natural user interface technology (NUI) and how they see these experiences helping propel their businesses forward.”
Now retailers can use a recently released update to the SDK (Kinect for Windows SDK 1.8) that includes new features specifically designed to develop higher-quality digital signage applications, such as the ability to remove backgrounds.
