Kinect Makes For Easy Motion Capture For Animated Series

Xbox Kinect homebrew hacks have been neat so far, but using it as an incredibly cheap way to motion capture for an animated series? That is incredibly amazing to me. If someone eventually, using the Kinect SDK, makes a program so users can easily do this without having any 3D modeling experience, I would totally make a web series as well. [Kinecthacks]

Yet as a gaming device Kinect is total crap. Move beats Kinect handsdown in gaming peripheral department. I haven't seen any great Kinect game nor have I heard any great Kinect games coming out in near future. Moves already have great games and more are coming. It might be Wii 2.0 but it's hell great at gaming and that's all what matters ;)

Yes, Kinect Dance Central is out there, but come on, that's Wii-shovelware-kiddie-family-short-fun kind of game! I'm talking about games with substance! Real hardcore tight games! :)

IMO, Kinect shouldn't have been released as gaming device in the first place. It's false marketing, really.
