[CNET] Kinect for Windows SDK means business

post #1 of 6

LAS VEGAS--Microsoft had some fun while offering up details of the software development kit for Kinect for Windows. A technology evangelist named Clint Rutkas jury-rigged a lounge chair with wheels, wiring, and a Kinect motion-sensing controller for the company's Xbox 360 game console. Then, using just hand gestures, he drove the chair onto the stage at Mix11, Microsoft's annual Web and mobile phone developer conference.

The Kinect SDK, though, may wind up leading to a business that's anything but trivial. The kit will give software developers tools to create applications that use motion-sensing and hand gestures. And Microsoft expects developers to come up with ideas that could generate huge paydays.

First news post please point out if i did anything wrong.

That's really cool, but, I think they should add voice command response to it. Hopefully they will before they start to add it to monitors and start selling the commercial SDK

This is great and all, but honestly I don't think this is the supposed innovation that Microsoft should be working towards, and the market feels to cluttered with new peripherals so its really hard for anyone to pick one and say they like it best.
