Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the robot apocalypse.

A new report by Eurogamer claims that the hardware that will eventually replace the current Kinect peripheral (presumably on the next Xbox console) will be so powerful that it can read lips and determine emotions by monitoring facial expressions. Citing unnamed sources, Eurogamer’s Wesley Yin-Poole says that the new hardware will feature higher resolution capture and a beefier chipset.

“It can be cabled straight through on any number of technologies that just take phenomenally high res data straight to the main processor and straight to the main RAM and ask, what do you want to do with it?” our source said.

I for one would like to welcome our new robot masters.
