iFixit decided to tear apart the new Microsoft Kinect to see what exactly is inside.

A few interesting finds include the addition of two cameras, four microphones as well as IR projectors and accelerometers.

The device uses a fan to keep it cool . iFixit believe its a bit of overkill for the amount of heat it will generate but then speculate its to keep things cool rather than face another RRoD problem like the Xbox had.

It have a 64MB of Hynix DDR2 SDRAM. It is included as well as a motor and a three-axis accelerometer that is believed to be used to correct the accuracy of the panning motor.
