First there was a year of hype surrounding Project Natal, but the reality that is Microsoft Kinect has been in my family home for a week now. Everyone from my 10 year old daughter to my retired mother-in-law have played with it, so what's the verdict? Is this the future of motion control gaming or just a flawed imitation of the Nintendo Wii? [attach]18053[/attach]Let's start at the beginning with what Kinect is not: it's most certainly not a Wii, nor a PlayStation Move for that matter, as it takes a quite different and truly unique approach to the whole motion …

Hi there! I'm currently working on a school project using a Kinect device. Me and my friend decided that we wanted to create the same 3D effect as [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jd3-eiid-Uw]this[/url] guy (Using our Kinect instead of using a Wii). We've made everything work perfectly, and we actually get a really cool 3D effect when walking around in the room. However, for that final awesome touch, we would like to draw sticks that are closer to the viewer than the clipping plane. This way it would feel like they actually come out of the screen. The problem is that all sources I …

I am thinking of developing a small game using Kinect for Windows. Well my intension is to use gestures to play the game. I am a newbie to Kinect, so i need your suggestions in this regard. I have three games in mind likely Tetris, Snake, Flight control. Well you know the first two and third one i thought about a flight in motion is moving forward in midst of obstacles in its direction, so the gestures by hands should help the flight to glide and travel through. So I need you to suggest me which is the easy one …

I am looking at getting into all this Kinect technology and bringing my ideas to life. I have combed the web for connecting Kinect, yet it seems that they speak of Kinect having a USB and mine doesn't. I got mine in a bundle, it has the 'orange tipped cable' (I couldn't find it's proper name but I do know it's function). By the way, no pun intended.

So I have an Xbox 360 and it is NOT hacked in any way. I am a gamer but I do mostly PC gaming therefore I do not my Xbox for gaming much, at least not online. My xbox is used primarily as a Media Center extender and I love it for that. I also play stuff like Guitar Hero, Rock Band and some other games (recent some Kinect games). I did create an Xbox Live account at some point but I barely used it. Now I want to start playing with some friends online so I was planning on …

No doubt, by now you have heard of Microsoft’s latest addition to their Xbox 360, the Kinect controller-less …uhh controller. Instead of a standard handheld controller, the Kinect is a stationary sensor bar that sits in front of your TV. While the Kinect has been compared to the Nintendo Wii’s vastly popular motion controller, it eliminates the concern of launching your controller through your TV during a harried round of Wii Tennis. Taking lethargy a step further, Kinect also allows you to control media on your XBOX 360 with verbal commands like “Xbox, Play” or intuitive hand gestures such as …

Peter Molyneux, the man behind Lionhead Studios and the fantasy based series, Fable, spoke at a TED Global (Technology, Entertainment, and Design) conference in Oxford on Tuesday, reintroducing Milo, the “virtual human” software that utilizes Microsoft’s upcoming Kinect controller for the Xbox 360. This is the first time Milo has been discussed since the E3 event held in 2009. Molyneux’s goal is to, "…introduce a new revolution in storytelling." He even believes that his pet project will set the course for a revolution in the way we interact with media. "Films, TV, even hallowed books, are just rubbish because they …
