    Hacked Kinect is pretty awesome. Seems the 3d motion tracking without suits is great to even control robots and do other awesome 3d based work. Animation and motion tracking for games is pretty interesting, they seem to be very well polished and react right. This is the next big step though to control the real world.

    This is great! And a nice insight to see what’s too come!

    Too bad microsoft is not exploiting the true potential of this wonderful technology.
