  1. Go for it!….

  2. "YOU GONNA GET MODIFIED!"

    Does 4chan ruin everything, or just make everything more awesome? IMMA CHARGIN MY LAZER.

  3. MC 900 Foot Cheezits

    CONSEQUENCES WILL NEVER BE THE SAME!!!

  4. Filed under: random

  5. Any chance you’ll do a detailed write up? I’ve never started from scratch trying to mod something. Would be nice to see a good report about how it is done etc etc.

  6. cool but do they even have an xbox 360?

  7. @bigbodynobrian:
    I have no idea, but that’s kind of beside the point, given that Adafruit wants to hack it to work on /other/ platforms.

  8. Thanks for joining the fray. Good to know we’ll get some packets one way or another. (Amazing how many people seem to have full speed beagles but no high speed…).

  9. Teach Microsoft a few new tricks? Priceless!

  10. THIS even made it into my LOCAL newspaper, WOW cant wait to see what comes of this

  11. @Jeffery MacEachern:
    In order to analyze the signals the Kinect is sending out, they need an XBox to receive those signals. So yes, they will be getting an XBox.
