Nice innovative product! Truly a prelude to the future of motion-sensing technology!

Summary: Microsoft has really made a comeback in the realm of innovation. When I first played the Kinect for XBOX in 2010, I was amazed at how a device like this exists, when you can control almost anything with just your gestures. Something like this could probably replace the computer mouse. What I like about the Kinect for Windows is that it is truly a product of the future designed for today.
Summary: The kinect was my first experience with the interactive gameplay now available. I enjoy every minute of it. So many different type of games that can be played. Kinect Adventures was a awesome first game. Starts you out easy and lets you work your way up in the challenge or you can just free play you favorite game. Great combo.
Summary: I was shocked at how short this was. It connects nicely, but it's only 2ft tall.. I would have preferred it to be 3 ft. Height is not adjustable. So make sure that 2ft tall is exactly what you want.
Summary: I used to own the Wii and sold it before I purchased the Kinect. I like the convenient point and click with the Wii. The Kinect has no controllers, it relies only your body, hand, feet, head, etc movements. It is a little more lag time when changing screens or starting with only your hand movements, but still works well without a controller. It can be a little frustrating with the calibration and coordinating your body just so as to work successfully with the Kinect.
Summary: it works amazing, you just need to have the space in your house for it, over 6ft play room, it takes pictures of you in some of the games, defiantly alot of exercise you get in the games, great for family's to play together
Summary: The Kinect was something I just couldn't get behind. It lacked precision. I would be standing their waving my arms like a cheerleader trying to get the game to move the way I wanted it to, but it was to no avail. I'm sure this device would be a lot of fun for a child, but for an adult or even a teenager, I doubt they would be pleased with such an inaccurate and limited device.
