Kinect for Xbox 360-Controlling by Moving Your Body

imageUntil now, I didn’t want my kids playing video games. Too passive.

Well, not anymore. Personally, I think this video of my kids is more powerful than Microsoft’s official video, but I’m biased.

“You are the controller” is the tag line for the Xbox 360 Kinect system and, well, let’s just say that that is indeed the case.

You can play a video game without holding any controller or any type. You just stand in front of the camera and move around.

It’s pretty crazy.

Best of all, it’s active and, now, I have a 5 year old who thinks it’s totally normal to stand in front of a TV and have his actions reflected on the screen.
