What is Kinect and why will it be good for your Xbox 360?
Formerly known as Project Natel, Xbox Kinect is new Xbox technology that will change the face of videogames forever. Xbox 360 Kinect will turn YOU into the controller for games and entertainment, and it will work with every Xbox 360. Unlike 2-D cameras and controllers, Kinect tracks your full body movement in 3-D, while responding to commands, directions, even a difference of emotion in your voice.
What's with the name 'Kinect'?
The driving philosophy behind Kinect is of kinetic, movement-based control, and being connected to both your Xbox and the Xbox Live community. Put them together and you have the name'Kinect' - though it's no surprise some people get jumbled and call in 'Kinetic'!
