Why does the unit itself have to be that big?

What's hiding in it?

There is no way that it can accurately tell your heart rate without a monitor... thats BS.

it's not super accurate but it pretty close said developers.... Our goal is to reveal temporal variations in videos that are difficult or impossible to see with the naked eye and display them in an indicative manner. Our method, which we call Eulerian Video Magnification, takes a standard video sequence as input, and applies spatial decomposition, followed by temporal filtering to the frames. The resulting signal is then amplified to reveal hidden information. Using our method, we are able to visualize the flow of blood as it fills the face and also to amplify and reveal small motions. Our technique can run in real time to show phenomena occurring at temporal frequencies selected by the user.

So when I'm playing the dragon game and its at a very actiony part I can take my hand off thr controller and salute for help? What are the npc dragons gonna help? I will be dead!!!!

Also they said in same the same game that they will give extra exp n stuff for kinect use.... if you have faith in your product you shouldn't need to incentivize it, after all its intuitive right? Why would you need to incentivize something that's easier??? The customer will have already dumped $100 into it that's a big enough investment to at least see if its fun to use... if it works well they would end up using it.. unless it doesn't then I can see where incentives would be needed to justify its use

wow ive never seen anyone stutter so bad when there selling a product....

so how MS see it we are all fat yanks and we need to get more exercise...

im sorry but after watching that video thats what i come away with

and as ive always said all there doing is trying to get there box under everyones tv and there using us gamers to get that install base.
