Kinect 2 Nightvision.

So I was watching some Youtube Kinect 2 stuff and seen that it has nightvision built in. Any rumors out there about some game using this feature?

Oh man, I hope my cell phone camera and laptop camera ain't watching me! I'm not too worried though, because ONLY Xbox would do such a thing, right?

Is "tinfoil hat" still a legitimate retort, when the NSA scandal is an actual fact?

Yes since the Kinect spying on you is not.

That along with the ability to unplug it, turn it off, cover it etc. I am surprised the NSA "spycam" stupidity is still around these boards

I'm not, people never let facts get in the way of bashing something they irrationally hate.

TC, the active IR mode is simply so the Kinect can see your body in whichever kind of light situation you have in your room. It essentially blocks out all the light sources in the room so it can still make out your eye movement or you what have you even if it's completely dark in the room or if you have a light on next to you that is shining super bright on one side of your face but making your other side completely dark. It's a really neat feature because as the Kinect 1 is right now, you need to have perfect lighting in the room for it to work "correctly".

I think it's even more naive to think they're not collecting data just because "they said so". Apparently they explicitly stated they weren't collecting data on us many years ago, and then the NSA scandal broke out. The fact that the Government haven't once said they're closing down the programme, I'd say it's pretty stupid to think otherwise.

And if unplugging the Kinect is the way to go, I'd be wasting that extra money on a device I'm forced to buy and won't ever use. I'll guess I'll wait for the Kinect-less SKU.
