Another day, another new Kinect hack. Kinect has become sort of like a canvas that is allowing hacker’s imaginations run wild. This time Kinect has been hacked to allow control of XBMC, a popular media center app, using just hand gestures. While this isn’t an elegant solution as you can tell from the video, it could be improved to become as useable as the Kinect hub on Xbox 360. Or Microsoft could just add more features to the Kinect hub to allow us to browse through our movie collections, minority report style. What up!
No wonder Kinect has already sold so many units.
