Amazon Key in-home delivery coming soon, Microsoft ends Kinect productionToday's major tech stories include Amazon's new in-home delivery service called Key, Microsoft's decision to end Kinect production and a brand new Nintendo mobile game coming to Android and iOS.
This is CNET and here are the stories that matter right now. Amazon Key will soon allow Prime members to receive packages when they're not home. The process involves a smart lock and cloud camera that will record the delivery just to make sure everything goes smoothly. After the carrier has dropped off a package, they lock the door and move on. The service isn't just for deliveries, customers can use it for dog walkers or anyone who they want to have access to their home. Amazon key will go for 250 dollars when it launches November 8th. Microsoft has announced that the motion technology known as Kinect has been shut down internally, though support for it will continue to live on. There are about 35 million Kinects out in the wild. The vast majority sold with Xboxs. Kinect never really gained much momentum after its buzzy debut and Xbox One integration has barely even been an afterthought as of late. And finally, Nintendo just about ready to release Super Mario Odyssey has also announced Animal Crossing Pocket Camp for iOS and Android. The popular world building game will be available some time in November though, curiously, it's already live in Australia.
