Do You Really Know Kinect’s Capabilities?

The new sensation sweeping the gaming world is the interactive Kinect made for Xbox 360.  The game has become so popular and competitive with the Wii, people are saying, “Wii? What’s that?”  We are such a fickled nation that nothing, especially technology lasts.  We have to have more…more….more….MORE! And Kinect is the new “more” we did not expect. There’s a lot more to it than meets the eye.

The Business Insider report that gaming fanatics and techies have found their ultimate new toy.  For them, it has been the game that keeps on giving. They have found ways to get inside the technology and use it against itself.  The results: 3D shadowing, interactive puppeteering, image recognition, multi-touch to drag and drop photos ( explained as “similar to the machine used by Tom Cruise in the 2002 movie Minority Report”). 

There are many more capabilities they have found.  Check them out here.
