Minority Report in my Living Room

Trevor Tamsen writes: "When the buzz started building around Microsoft's Kinect, I have to admit I was cold. I don't see the appeal of jumping around and having it act out on screen. I have a ritual when playing games from my chair down to my beverage every time I settle in for a long session of gaming.


Then I saw a piece from all places CNN London on the release of Kinect. Despite laughing my ass off at a older british man try to steer his raft on Kinect adventures, something else caught my eye. It was the menu. It was voice operation. It was the fact that Kinect turns your television screen into the computer Tom Cruise uses to pre-solve murders in Minority Report."

Why anyone would want to buy kinect for the sole purpose of replicating Tom Cruise's faggotry in a sci-fi film is beyond me. Im in it for the core mechanics, not some "Look ma, no hands!" party trick.

Minority Report was a good movie I think many of his movies back then were great. mission impossible, Minority Report, Last samurai all good movies.

Second only PS Move has actually shown Minority Report style stuff. THEy even called the demo Minority Report. plus he was wearing gloves in the move to track his hands. and again kinect has not shown anything remotely similar to Minority Report.

just saying

M$ isn't even good at ripping off Minority Report's technology.
They forget that Tom Cruise was using a glove with 3 LED lights on the thumb. pointer and middle finger. ha ha ha ha!

The Move on the other hand has one LED light which is enough to represent that motion sensing tech hence the "Minority Report-ish" tech demo Dr. Richard Marks & Anton Mikhailov coded for the PS Move.

Smokes and Mirrors will always be M$ way of making business. Kinect is such a big & expensive joke.
