I cannot wait to get my hands on Steel Battalion now that I know it is a Kinect + controller hybrid game. Rise of Nightmares has also piqued my interest.
On topic, with a BAFTA for Kinect Sports in the bag, it seems Kinect has its sites on a Nobel award with all these medical and educational uses popping in everyday.

the Nobel is awarded to single individuals or groups of people, not a piece of tech

on topic, its a great way to introduce tech to 3rd world countries...educate the young so that your country has a stronger foundation for the future

I find it weird that everyone was saying kinect will be hardcore with no controller in fact that was the whole argument right? kinect liberates you and puts you in the games and it very well may prove to be but then when i see people happy that SB:HA will have a controller does that mean people have realized you can't do as much as you'd like to think with kinect?

Wow if Avatar peaks their creative interest then I would like to see them with Little Big Planet 2, their heads would explode...Kinect...It only does everything (except gaming)

@Logicwinns..whatever floats your boat dude..

DUUUUUDE, that teacher at 1:32 is smokin hot!

Btw, nice vid. Its good to see that children from impoverished backgrounds are getting a hold of this technology.

@DragonSlayer- Kinect doesn't do gaming? The smiles of the children in that vid beg to differ.
