Becoming Skynet

There's no doubt that the Kinect is a fascinating piece of tech. But how does it work? Unsurprisingly, there's a lot going on under the hood of this thing. A very informative post on the Xbox Engineering Blog can clue you into that, if you're interested. Truly, it's really compelling stuff. Who knew something as simple as a hand gesture could be so radically complex to program? Algorithms? Thankfully, the tech speak is kept to a minimum, so even if you're not tech saavy, it's a great read.

I tell you, with every day I own this thing, the more I think $150 was a great bargain.

Think I'll go unplug it now before I get to bed. Feels like it's watching me.
