The future of gaming: *this* changes everything.

Forget memorizing button sequences, drop the joystick, and put down the Wiimote: Microsoft Kinect, which can “recognize faces, obey voice commands, and track body movements,” according to the LA Times, will enable users to control their video game avatars just by moving their bodies in front of the Kinect (see video below). Kinect users will also be able to control movies just by speaking commands, such as “play” or “pause.”

Controller-free? This is huge. Not just for gaming. Consider applications for education, accessibility, communication, information design…

Contrary to what our good friends at Apple would like us to believe, THIS changes everything.
