That's the claim by some folks. It doesn't pickup dark skin tones very well.
No. People alway make something ridicious out of basic technology because they do not fully understand it. Kinect work on the principle of detecting infrared light (heat). It does not matter what color your skin is, we all generate heat. It uses facial recognition software to identify the users and log them in system. As always technology comes with it limitations; Consumer Reports was only stating that Kinect works better in a well lit environment to pick up those facial features for the recognition software to work better. There is no racism here.
That is one of the most unintentionally funny titles ever!!

Thats like asking if the colored ink in tattoos is racist because it doesn't show up well on darker skinned people. I agree with warchild the title definitely got my attention!
Whilst obviously not racist, the concept is still hilariously funny, haha great find
thats just stupid.. it could be that its having a bit of trouble recognizing darker skin for face recognition. Or people might have poor lighting conditions in the room. It has to be bright for it to work decently
