people are using this hardware for all type of creative reasons

Seems to be best used for helping the world and it's technological advances rather than a in-house gaming device.

Kinect is saving people, wow. MS made a great piece of tech.

I know MS brought the company that made the Camera, and put their software behind it. With MS software(RARE) and funding, and PrimeSense hardware(range camera technology), Kinect was born. So just like my first comment "MS made a great piece of tech." your only half right also.

let's hope the lag doesn't lose them precious time in the rescue!

nah all jokes aside, I'm glad the tech is being used for something good.
