It’s amazing to think that Kinect is only a year old. It’s set the Guinness World Record for the fastest selling consumer device.

And here’s a one minute video summary of some of the things that it’s being used for. It’s the kind of advert you don’t see on TV. Perhaps it might inspire the next wave of innovation?

(Can’t see the video – it’s on YouTube here)

There’s a gallery of Kinect projects over on the Microsoft PressPass site, with a dozen other examples.
