7 areas beyond gaming where Kinect could play a role… Thanks Kevin!

Joe Sinicki summarized Kinect’s broader influence in his review: “The main draw of Kinect is not what it does now, but what developers may be able to do with it in the future.” Given OpenKinect, a set of open source drivers that unlocks the device’s potential, the developer opportunities are considerable.

  1. I’m really excited by the amount of interest the kinect is seeing. I’ve been super busy the past few weeks, so I hadn’t even seen a Kinect in person until yesterday. Quite a piece of work it is! If I didn’t already have a desk full of projects in progress, I’d be buying one immediately to start playing around with.

    Heck, I may do that anyway šŸ™‚
