Xbox One, the new generation of technology.
The Xbox One unveiling has everyone buzzing. Xbox One is changing the face of home entertainment with new technology that surpasses all expectations, making it well worth the seven year wait. Microsoft has new technology focused on simplifying all of your entertainment needs under one console. Movies, Games and Internet are only the beginning as the Xbox One now offers Skype and Live TV in an all-in-one package. The sleek new look and futuristic features make it the Lamborghini of its industry. It’s just missing a butterfly door.
Microsoft intended to make the user interface more accessible by redesigning the controller and Kinect. Xbox One is always connected and ready to go. All it takes is your voice to make Xbox One come alive. Although the Xbox 360 linked TV, games and entertainment in one unit, Xbox One offers a more advanced way to navigate throughout your home entertainment system by voice commands and full body gestures. A remote control is so 1980’s. Now you can simply turn on your device by stating “Xbox On”. The Xbox One will recognize your voice and take you to a personalized home page. If you want to watch TV, just tell it. Want to surf the Internet, just call on Internet Explorer. It will respond to your every command.
Voice activated commands is just one convenient upgrade to the new Xbox One. Now users can make gestures such as grabbing the screen with their hands to virtually move from one page to the next. Kinect is truly connected, so much so that it can even read your heartbeat while working out. Snap mode also allows users to multitask by opening up multiple programs at the same time.
Although there are super cool features to the new Xbox One, it’s not just a hub for home entertainment. At trueITpros, LLC we noticed a unique way the Xbox One can actually help small business owners. (You knew we would tie this into small business IT some kind of way.) With the new voice command and easy access to the Internet from the Xbox One, presentations just became fun. Normally you stand in front of an audience with a clicker and a projection screen of PowerPoint slides. With the Xbox One you can leave that clicker back in 1999 and use your hands to navigate through a cool business presentation for new clients. Maybe even finish that quarterly company meeting with a breeze. When you walk in to the lobby of the trueITpros office, we have a slide presentation about the company on an iPad. But how cool would it be if we had a large screen up with the Kinect running that picked up on body movement as people walked into the office. New visitors could stand there and use their hands to move our company presentation along the wall. Pretty neat eh? Xbox One is not only for home entertainment, it is also has other multifaceted uses.
