The key features introduced are:

  • Kinect Interactions –  Kinect Interactions are designed to let users intuitively do things like press their hand forward a few inches to push a button, or close their hands to “grip and pan” as seen here. Now you can untether yourself and move around a conference room naturally.

    3-D renderings of people and objects in real time.
