I’m not sure that many of you know this, but Kinect for Xbox 360 holds the Guinness Book of World Records for the fastest selling consumer electronic device in history. Since its launch users around the world have been using Kinect in creative new ways. We’ve dubbed this the “Kinect Effect” here at Microsoft. Kinect for Windows has taken this even further by opening a doorway into seeing and interacting with the world that many of us thought was solely for the movies. Just this week the technology behind Kinect for Windows – including Windows Embedded – is on display at New York Fashion Week in the form of Swivel, a virtual dressing room from FaceCake that gives people the chance to try on clothes without changing. What a concept.
Today, another member of The Embedded Ninja clan, Eric Kamont, shares his observations and examples of leveraging Kinect as part Intelligent Systems. Kinect and enjoy!
