  11. Depth• Ability to get distance of pixel based on the sensor & gives player index• Default or near mode
  12. Skeleton Tracking
  13. Skeleton Tracking• Two trackingmodes :  Default  Seated• Positions are in three dimensional world based on the sensor. (values are in meters)
  14. Speech• Tracks loudest audio input• Automatic ambient noise filter• Can track position by noise
  15. Face Tracking• Released since SDK 1.5• 87 tracked points• Not unique per user
  16. Kinect Fusion (vNext)
