Microsoft Corp. starts selling “Kinect,” a new gesture-sensing system for the Xbox 360 videogame console on November 4. The Microsoft Kinect uses a 3-D camera and motion recognition software that lets players control games with body and hand gestures.
Without using a controller, a player can get out of the couch by using his full body to play, now that’s healthy. It’s much like the Nintendo Wii, but Kinect uses the players hands or body to control the game like magic!
Remote control is a thing of the past, with Microsoft Kinect you can control HD movies or music with the sound of your voice or just a wave of a hand.
If you already have an Xbox 360, all you need is a kinect bundle. “Kinect for Xbox 360” is priced at $149.99 and will include the Kinect Sensor and the videogame “Kinect Adventures.”
Other game titles: Dance Central, Kinect Sports, Your Shape: Fitness Evolved, Kinectimals, Kinect JoyRide, among others.
Two additional options are also available if you don’t have an Xbox 360, an Xbox 360 250GB console with Kinect is priced at $399, while a new new Xbox 360 4GB console with Kinect costs $299.
