What is 'Xbox Kinect Accelerator'?

XboxKinectAccelerator.com / XboxKinectAccelerator.net

What's your idea about this? Let the speculation commence!"

Maybe an accessory that improves performance? Or a controller to work with Kinect?

I would lean more towards either device for performance increase or an actual firmware upgrade with new tool set for devs.

I am highly skeptical of it being a controller.

I think it is software to help developer get up to speed on how to program for kinect.

Probably an addition that hardly adds anything to the Kinect, then is hyped up by Microsoft as the second coming, sells at a high price, earns Microsoft a lot of cash and leaves their customer base very disappointed.

Sorry if I sound like a jerk saying that, but they've proven on multiple occasions that it's not beyond them.
