The Kinect Effect

One year ago this week, Xbox 360 set out to change the way we interact with games and entertainment with the launch of Kinect for Xbox 360. Sales immediately soared with more than 10 million Kinect sensors sold, setting the Guinness World Record as the fastest-selling consumer electronics device in 60 days along the way. But people were inspired not just to play; but also to discover, innovate and create. We call this “The Kinect Effect.”

    Marketing department going crazy, half of these showcases unfortunately wouldn’t work like that because of the poor lighting conditions shown in the video, but hey who am I to question marketing.

    Also, controlling a bomb-disposal robot with a non-feedback input device seems pretty stupid.
    This is pretty cool:

    They must be kidding, Kinect is far to provide such experiences, its accuracy is so poor right now… You just need to see the ridiculous wii-like game using it at the moment to understand it.
    Actually, no problem, casual sheeps will greedly swallow these bullshits.

    half of these are fake, not feasible with this technology
