While there is lot of research going on to the way we react with the computers we see very little getting their way into the consumer market.
When it comes to the Kinect for Xbox 360 it is more than a simple gimmick. With this device all the commands carried out by gestures and your whole body can be used for the game.
This is a really good feature and sometimes very intuitive way to play specially considering games like athletic sports. You have to really run and jump! (More fun way to burn few kg of body weight rather than a boring run on a treadmill) All in all you really have to play!
It’s sad that it seems only be for the Xbox and not for the PCs.
