Kinect was first announced at E3 in 2009 as "Project Natal."
The Kinect reached a Guinness World Record as the fastest-selling gaming peripheral in 2011.
In 2013, Kinect sales reportedly surpassed 24 million units.

Kinect will live on... Some of the tech powering Kinect is being used in Microsoft's newer products like the Hololens.
