The Kinect is a very intriguing piece of hardware, one with more promise than may seem immediately apparent.

Ars spoke to Florian Echtler, who created a program that allow you to resize and manipulate images. While the application is still in its early phases, Echtler claims that working with the hardware is easier than you'd expect. This is just the beginning.
