Kinect 2.0 will be joining with Windows PCs on July 15, according to a listing on the Microsoft store.

The Microsoft Store is currently carrying a listing for version two of the 3D camera with a July 15 release date. The PC version of Kinect features a HD color camera, an improved noise-isolating multi-microphone, an expanded field of view, and more accurate skeletal tracking.

“Both the new Kinect sensor and the new Kinect for Windows sensor are being built on a shared set of technologies. Just as the new Kinect sensor will bring opportunities for revolutionizing gaming and entertainment, the new Kinect for Windows sensor will revolutionize computing experiences. The precision and intuitive responsiveness that the new platform provides will accelerate the development of voice and gesture experiences on computers,” said Director of Kinect for Windows Bob Heddle back when the sensor was first announced.

The sensor can be pre-ordered now via Microsoft’s store for $199, but will not ship with the Kinect for Windows SDK 2.0 development software, which must be licensed separately. With Kinect for Windows SDK 2.0 developers can build applications with C++, C#, VB.Net, Cx, or JavaScript.
