I commented that Kinect has a lot more upside as far as the technology goes and that down the road some very interesting and fun things could surface. Readers, I present to you my evidence for my claim.
Youtube user Yankeyan decided to celebrate 25 years of Mario by giving the double finger to Microsoft; first by hacking their brand new piece of hardware, then making it play a direct competitor's video game. I love it. He programmed the system to recognize his movements and ported them to the buttons of his NES emulator, not the easiest controls in the world as the video shows but it looks awesome right? Yankeyan gets the Gameshoe seal of approval for overall awesomeness in the area of "sticking it to the man."
