The Kinect motion controller goes on sale today.
The gadget attaches to the Xbox 360 video game console and allows people to control games through the motion of their bodies, without having to hold anything. GameSpot Vice President John Davison says the biggest reason for Microsoft to create the Kinect is so more families will get involved in video games. The Kinect includes voice and facial recognition, a thermal camera and stereoscopic cameras. The device costs 150 dollars and includes a game called “Kinect Adventures.” Six Kinect titles will be available for purchase on release day, including Kinect Sports, Kinect Joy Ride and Your Shape: Fitness Evolved.
