A recent job listing for a Senior Software Engineer seems to suggest as much.

We’ve heard about Microsoft’s Kudo Tsunoda, one of the creators for Kinect, and the new project he’s working on. However, a recent job listing for a Senior Software Engineer suggests that Microsoft’s Kinect creators could be working on some new technology.

The job listing states that the candidate will need to “build magical, delightful and disruptive consumer experiences for the next generation of technology (from the creators of the Kinect: Alex Kipman and Kudo Tsunoda)” and that they are “looking to make significant contributions to the early stages of a project with huge growth potential.”

While the “next generation of technology” could be referring to the Xbox One itself (rather than something brand new), one of the key responsibilities requires the candidate to, “Drive the planning, estimation, implementation, execution and measurement of technologies.” In a way it could be something brand new or at least a small addition to the current Xbox One experience.

It must be noted that this piece of information should be taken with a grain of salt, but what are your thoughts on this? Let us know in the comments below.

    Alex Kipman + Kudo + Xbox One = An Xbox Hololens game/app. But r they gonna announce something at E3, or next year? My bet is they’ll reveal this next year after Hololens debuts this holiday.

    It would be great, if micosoft release the holo lens at a reasonable price into Xbox one console in games, and since the Xbox one is about a year or 2 ,,and the sells wasn’t great, they should not make a newer console and just make better games on Xbox one, I would be pissed, if they do make a newer console now, I love my Xbox one and the 360 ,,so yeah,, just make the holo lens device cheaper and I would love to see,, what we can do with this on the Xbox one experience.

      In regards to HoloLens and its price, indeed.

      I would hope for a consumer friendly price, and supposedly there are two versions.

      One for the “average” consumer and one for the industry like with NASA and that Mars tech demo/project and other industrial applications, but considering the technology in the Hololens… well I have my doubts, even when talking about the “cheaper” version.

      “The sells wasn’t great”

      Hardly the case

      http://news.xbox.com/2015/01/xbox-one-record-breaking-holiday-look-ahead-2015

      From the article above:

      “The past year was a fantastic one for the video game industry – and Xbox One ended 2014 with an unprecedented holiday season, becoming the best-selling console in the U.S. in November and December.* In fact, weekly average sales during these months outpaced Xbox 360 by 50 percent at the same point in its lifecycle.”

      And MS has invested too much for them to just shelve the x1 and release a newer console after a few years when it’s – contrary to what fanboys want to imply – selling really well. And if you consider that the 360 was on the market alone for 1 entire year (the 360 was released November
      of 2005, the ps3 was released November 2006) and yet the x1 is still selling better … well considering that, there is really no reason for concern.

      Besides the x1, ps4, wii u were in development for a long time before they were released, the same can be said for their next console – if there will be one.
