Yo! Any tech-wizards care to explain these specs to me? They mean almost nothing. In the sense that I know they mean “things”, but I cannot tell you what those “things” translate to.
I could say I understand the jist of these new details, but I’m just like “oh shit new Xbox details. I don’t understand them with my fat brain, but I know I want it.” Do you understand these details? Are you excited like me? It’s a cucumber in my pants, chill out.
Skynet is upgrading its wares, infiltrating the next generation of Kinect sensors and the shit. Soon it will be able to accurately track the motions of your hand as you masturbate. Despite turning the system off, the camera will be on. Aware. Recording your furry habits.
The Xbox/Kinect bundle for $99 that the entire gaming internet speculates up on last week turns out to be real. The catch, the answer to how it can be peddled for such limited ducets, has also been revealed.
Back in February I pointed all your goggle-eyes towards a Skyrim Sizzle Reel that displayed what the developers would love to add into the title. One of the joints in the sizzle reel were flying dragon mounts. That was awesome. Another was stupid fucking Kinect support. That was dumb. I am bitter. Can you guess which one is actually getting implemented?
This is just the friggin’ berries right here. Using a Kinect and a transparent 3D display, gurus over at the Micro-soft have created a concept PC that would let you manipulate apps with your hands in a 3D space. Minority Report ++!

Listen, let’s all calm down with bringing the Skynet Cylon revolution into our fucking grocery stores. Well, anymore than it already is. I mean, laziness is good and all. I get it. You want to be fat. You want to ride your scooters around Walmart while you buy shit you don’t need. That said, we need to draw the line somewhere. I’m drawing it at having a Kinect-enabled Fascist Robot Shopping Cart point out when you’re buying the wrong spaghetti.
Hit the jump for more info, and the horror.
An uncovered patent has revealed something that shouldn’t surprise you: Sony is working on their own iteration of Microsoft’s console-pushing Kinect.
Astronauts can lose a lot of mass due to muscles atrophying and shit in space. What a conundrum! How do take measurements of their bodies to ensure they stay fit? Why, activate HAL!…or the Kinect. It will scan them. Track them. Play chess with them.
The Kinect. I’ll let you in on a secret. I cracked, gave into curiosity, and asked for one for Christmas. Call it the Child of Eden effect. Whatever you feel about it as Gaming’s Future, its technology has been leveraged into some dope things. The most recent? A national science prize for two high schoolers.
