Kinect Guards South Korea Border

Kotaku, Forbes and other sites quote Korean-language newspaper Hankooki saying that Kinect-based system identifies the objects crossing the DMZ between South and North Koreas. It can discern the difference between animals and humans. If the system detects a human, it will alert the nearby outpost. Further details are sparse, supposedly because this involves South Korea national security.


  1. Kinect 1 (formerly PrimeSense and now Apple) or Kinect 2 (formerly Canesta and now MS)? Due to development time I am going to guess the former, and since Apple is pulling all PS sensors from the market, looks like the DMZ will be needing another supplier.

  2. It's the MS. And they say they use state-of-the-art technology.

  3. MS, huh? Gives "Blue Screen of Death" a new meaning in the DMZ.
