Our LA Adventure Day 5 ~ The Premiere of the Xbox Kinect
Yesterday afternoon we were taken by coach to attend the launch of the new Xbox Kinect previously known as Project Natal. We went to a swanky penthouse in downtown LA, and were amongst the first members of the public to actually try out this new level of gaming. Motion sensors and voice activation scan for movement so a hand-held controller isn't needed. This means that you actually get to control the game by moving your own body, for instance when I tried out a game of ten-pin bowling I had to move my hand to pick up the ball and then throw it down the virtual alley in the same way you would in real life. Same movement, same spin on the ball, same results!
