Forza 4 Gets Cool Kinect Head Tracking

If you spend any time on a racetrack or an autocross course inside a car with an instructor one of the things they will tell you is to look ahead of where you are and let your hands follow your eyes. It’s easy traveling at speed to focus on what’s right in front of your car and that makes it hard to go fast and anticipate what is going on ahead of you on the track. This same technique will help gamers that are fans of racing games too.

Forza Motorsport 4 is apparently going to be getting some cool head-tracking tech integrated that uses the Kinect sensor to allow the driver to smoothly look where they are going and have the view on the game change to match where the driver is looking. The impressive part for me from the video is just how smooth and responsive it is.

As the driver moves their head, the view changes to precisely match where the driver is looking. This is very cool and will help people learn to drive faster in the game and practice might even help real world racers learn to drive better.
