Xbox One Kinect gestures very different to demos

Microsoft’s Yusuf Medhi explains: “This is something I haven’t seen us show yet. There aren’t any swiping gestures for UI navigation like what was shown at the reveal. You start with an open palm at about chest level for a hand to show up, waving is gone. To scroll left or right, you “grab” the virtual dashboard pane and form a fist. Then you can move your fist left and right. Very much like click and drag in maps. Selection is done by pressing. Hence the large metro square and rectangle designs. Makes pressing virtual buttons easier,” the developer said.

"For selections and pressing buttons, a forward push with an open palm is the equivalent of a left-click on the button."

I think this could finally open some board games and strategy games to Kinect. the grab and drag and the 'push palm' to enable are enough to make it happen. Plus the new Kinect is very sit down friendly.

So basically doing exactly what we used to do with the Power Glove, only without the Power Glove.

This is really what some people are legitimately excited for?
