Kinect Motion Control is Coming to the PC

Posted by | November 26, 2011

Microsoft has been pushing hard on their Kinect motion control system for the Xbox 360, and now they’re planning to bring the hardware to the PC. Running the Kinect on a computer provides a new set of challenges for the developer, mostly in that PC gamers seldom ride their keyboards from six feet away. To solve this, Microsoft has announced the system will offer a “near mode” that allows the Kinect to track from as close as two feet. Given Microsoft’s efforts to open the Kinect hardware to the community, a version that runs on PC could be a killer ap for the device. Who knows what people are going to do with this thing? Gamespot has the story.
