Umm...no it doesnt. lol
so they got it recognizing an open hand vs a fist def good stuff but they need to get it reading fingers b4 its even close to practical imo. n @ ^ agree at best a poor mans minority report...
i dont like kinect but.. it could recognize fingers trough the normal CAM not the 3d one... the only to sense depth .. well.. it could be done.. but i think it would take much power away from the console itself.. and it wont be perfect... i still dont see a game aplication but i could turn out really awesome for pc..
Check this out. This is a little bit more indepth into Sci-Fi.
its a nice start but needs work probably cant be done unless you can use your fingers
@NecrumSlavery Why I have nothing against Move lets not pretend it has any practical use outside of gaming because it simply doesn't. I have seen plenty of potentially useful uses for Kinect outside of gaming. I mean it's even being looked at from a military standpoint in some areas. What are they going to do with Move ask the Taliban to hold the remote why a machine gun fitted with an eyetoy shoots at them?
WHY doesn't any one realize that as cool as this may seem, it is the most unpractical method of controlling any type of interface... This is NOT an improvement in any way shape or form compared to a keyboard and mouse. Same goes for gaming, Kinect is not an improvement compared to a physical controller and buttons.. It's just not It looks so awkward and inaccurate. Not to mention it takes so much longer to do simple tasks that we can already do much faster.
@rush ok . im going to reply this the next time someone says that.. dude "kinect has many uses outside gaming unlike move?" m8.. kinect is the device.. its the name MS uses to market a peripheral a peripheral that has technology that by no means has nothing to do with kinect... this technology existed without the need of MS. they developed Software to make it work better cuz the hardware is weak... the ARMY wont use an xbox CPU to make a 3d camera work.. so they wont have problems of lag or anything else this thing is cheap.. we all know it .. it could work properly with a better hardware...
Not even close
Indeed it doesn't. In Minority Report, Tom Cruise wears a data glove with small lights on his fingertips. If you added that to your hand, Kinect would have no trouble at all tracking the lights and your fingers. But it's impractical.
Those TV's are awesome. Don't know If I'd wanna play games on one though.
"Kinect Web Browsing Looks Like Minority Report" From the early 90's and hard to follow?
I still think this is cool - and this is coming from someone with ZERO interest in the Wii, Move, or Kinnect. The fact that this tech is being used in interesting ways just shows how the video game industry is a major player in the pushing of innovative tech use. years from now, it will be refined. While I think all this motion BS is a gimmick, I think this application is worthwhile and cool. I'm officially interested in non-gaming motion tech. If this was done with just the kinnect, imagine what can be done with propriety hardware with just one application: OS motion manipulation.
I agree. Also imagine using this technology with 3D where you could almost touch the objects on the screen, moving them around and so fort.
"where you could almost touch the objects on the screen, moving them around and so fort". You just described Tumble. As for the topic, years from now when its refined, it will be pretty sick.
Fail! Keyboard and mouse always the best unless they made a device that can read our minds! When we think a sentence then we see it on screen that moment! That is revolution. Kinect is a fail!
You wearing your hat like that is a big fail.
Pretty cool video, would be interesting to use atleast.
Kinect has a lot of potential if you look at the hacks for it
Microsoft should just released Kinect for PC as well with all the hacks
Ironically they where using Ubuntu...
lol Ubuntu with a mac keyboard too. xD
looks good, but where te hell the Holograms are?? No Holograms no Minority Report style :D
Add 3D and it wouuld look lust like MR
Kinect's amazing, i see lots of possibilities when i see this kind of video.
No, definitely not minority report.
>My face lights up upon reading the title >Watches related video >Sighs... It's hardly like Minority Report, and better technology for this type of use has been around for a while now.
But keep in mind that Kincet was built for videogames, not for this kind of thing. imo kinect will be better suited for PC.
'Kincet was built for videogames, not for this kind of thing' Exactly, which is why it's not as good as the other technology out there now.
mushroomwig like what technology? There is no other tech out there doing what was shown in this video. Nothing
Kinect > everything
honestly your just a bad troll. At least this is better than the stuff you had before but its still horrible. So go to some other website...please. That or throw your computer out the window so no one has to deal with you
Eventually you'd want to develop a browser interface that's built around the input device. For now, the hand is simply replacing a mouse, so you'd be better off just using a mouse. But if they built a whole browser around hand manipulation and gestures, it could be a step forward.
who really cares?kinects a neat device for the motion gaming but the motion fad is gonna last till next gen.
now i wanna watch them browse some pron sites :D what hand movements would they make... :)
The page won't stop scrolling up and down. "God damn it!"
This video makes me appreciate mouse and keyboard.
Kinect on PC just gets cooler every new video I see.
Hey, that's pretty cool and I'm impressed they were able to do this in a short amount of time. Hopefully they and all the other folks out there keep working with it and do even more cool things with kinect. I love that we live in a world where not only can people do things like this but share them with the entire world so that others can improve on it or use what a previous person has done in their own creative way.
Kinect Web Browsing does not look like Minority Report.
You forgot to say pause... no homo.
lol i was expecting something different its nice though its nice
