Kinect hacks abound

In a display of common sense and at least some modicum of marketing savvy, Microsoft has reversed their stance of Kinect hacking. Enthusiasts have picked up Microsoft’s newest XBOX add on, the Kinect not to play games but hack (some would say extend) access to its features. The Kinect is built to let XBOX 360 players play games without a control. But the Kinect has many hardware goodies like stereo camera, infared laser and stereoscopic microphones. It is a cheap platform for those looking to interact with their computers without a mouse or keyboard. Microsoft originally had warned programmers from hacking their Kinect devices with legal threats. But now they are acknowledging the potential value of some of these hacks. This newest hack allows you to control a web browser just with gestures. http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/_1PVd5ck_Iw?fs=1&hl=en_US&rel=0
