UMMMMMMMMMMMMM NOOOOOOO i don't want to see my sisters playing near my PC hell no way, they are too young and can brake something + i do a lot of movement with my fingers i don't need the kinect he he he .....hackers will have a lot of fun with this lol
No way this sounds amazing, it totally skips the touchscreen evolution and puts us one step closer to the holy grail of computing that was shown in Minority Report!!
Minority Report was my first thought too when I read about this yesterday lol
PCAudioLabs Rok Box MC 7xs - Intel Core i7-2600K - Cooling: PCAL Quiet Operation - Gigabyte Z68 Motherboard - 16GB DDR3-1333 - AMD Radeon HD 5450 - Power Supply: 600 Watts - SRT Drive: Intel 311 SSD (20GB) - Primary Drive: 500GB, 7200RPM, 16MB cache - Audio Drive: 1TB, 7200RPM, 32MB cache - Sample Drive: 2TB, 7200RPM, 64MB cache - OS: Windows 7 Professional x64
While I do appreciate this and am happy for the technology, I don't see this particular thing ever becoming the #1 way someone will interface with the computer (especially navigating/web browsing). It's cool for a minute, but who wants to wave their arms around for hours at a time while designing/working, etc.?
The true last frontier of interfacing is a brain-computer interface that doesn't require any hardware implants.
I enjoy Kinect-based video games so if it was integrated well I would certainly give it a chance. Probably mainly using it for browsing through all the pictures I have in a gallery or some other intuitive interface.
"I have the power!!"
I actually think it's a great way to extend the use of the motion sensing device. When I read about such technology, I try to think about the practical applications that it could bring to those wouldn't use it normally... think outside the box. People who have lost hands, fingers, thumbs, limbs from accidents or birth defects could great benefit from motion sensing technology. They could finally do things that many of us take for granted on our computers.
Never stop learning... until you're dead.
Jack of all trades, master of none.
