The Creative Director Behind Microsoft's Kinect

Techstination feature for Wednesday, November 10, 2010

The creative director behind Microsoft's Kinect. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. Microsoft's look ma no controller Kinect system for the Xbox 360 has arrived. It uses cameras and microphones to let you play games and control some other functions of the game console using body movements and your voice. It adds a new dimension of fun to titles designed for Kinect. It does require some added room and can also be affected by lighting conditions. That said, Kinect offers a break through way to play. Kudo Tsunoda is Kinect's Creative Director...

"It really is one of the very first technologies where instead of people having to learn how the technology works, the technology really understands how human beings work, what is most natural to you and includes that into the main component of your entertainment experiences."

The Kinect system is priced at about 150 dollars. There are bundles with games and with the 360 console available as well. You can find us at I'm Fred Fishkin.
