In the year since Microsoft launched controller-free Kinect for Xbox 360, the device has taken on a life of its own. First Kinect became the fastest-selling consumer device in history and then it started showing up outside the living room in healthcare, education, and technology.
Microsoft is rolling out its new gesture- and voice-controlled Kinect for Xbox 360 sensor on Thursday. Nine-year-old Morgan Walters is one of 1,200 kids, moms, and others who helped get the gaming device ready for launch. “It was really, really cool,” Morgan said after playing the Kinectimals game.
