So, I was playing Just Dance yesterday, but the Kinect did not recognized the lower half of me (When I looked at the square space, it was like I was a gost you know? Only the upper half lol), I was like "Wtf, I play this all the time and this never happened", then I was like "Ok...." and played some NBA.
Today I played again and it worked, so I wondered why it worked today and not yesterday, and the only difference was that yesterday I was using a black jeans, so I tried to play again with the black jeans and it didn't recognized. Tried the same with a black shirt, same thing, it didn't recognized me.
So... is this a problem with the color black, with the light? I dunno, but it's weird.
I played during the day, so the lights were ok.

I know an African American friend of mine had some trouble with the original kinect picking him up because of his skin tone. I thought that issue was worked out of the Kinect 2 though.

I wear black pants a lot, and don't really have too many problems with it detecting my legs.

Maybe the light then, not really sure. This is really awkward

Haha, it sounds like a joke but I read about a few cases of this happening.
It also reminds me of this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vE6mP3KSNLQ lmao
