This is actually surprising to me, I don’t know why. It looks like Microsoft actually doesn’t mind people hacking the Kinect as you can see in their latest campaign. This is actually the best Kinect advertisement that I’ve see come from Microsoft. Sure you can pet animals and dance in front of it but there is really not a lot of use for it when it comes to the Xbox and that’s why people are thinking outside the box for uses for the Kinect.
After watching that I actually want to go buy a Kinect! Microsoft needs to hire some of these people and make the Xbox use it more, then maybe I’ll buy. Also get better specs like the ones that were rumored. What are some of your favorite Kinect hacks? I need one that writes better articles for me, until then I will use Nick’s to perfect my Lady GaGa dance moves.
