Users will be able to customize Kinect 2.0 privacy

In a recent interview with CNET, Microsoft’s Jeff Henshaw, Group Program Manager for Xbox Incubation, provided a bit of of positive news regarding the pack-in Kinect peripheral for the Xbox One, which is required to be connected and powered on in order for Microsoft’s next-generation console to function.  While he confirmed that there is no way around the always-connected rule, he assured that consumers need not worry, as they will be able to control when and if the camera is able to "see" them:

Henshaw: "If you want privacy, we’ll give you modes that ensure your privacy. And we actually have a little bit about this on the Web already (for the original Kinect). We will have something similar for the Kinect with Xbox One. The system is designed to have Kinect be an integral part of the experience. It’s not the case where you’ll be able to remove the camera altogether. But you’ll be able to put the system in modes where you can be completely secure about the fact that the camera is off and can’t see you."

So you’ll still be able to walk around the apartment naked with the Xbox One without fear of being broadcasted on Xbox Live -- provided you’ve adjusted the proper settings.  Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for your pet dog or cat...what they see cannot be unseen.
