Default Kinect In/On Your PC.

I listen to the BBC World Service on a regular basis for various reasons.
One of which is a program called Digital Planet; Which is on at this very moment.

And has just had a few minutes on the 360Kinect, talking to a guy called Steve Baullmer, a CEO of Microsoft.
Pushed somewhat into answering the question, he grudginly admitted that the Kinect will be Officially supported for PC uses sometime in the future
Already done by a few people, Unofficially/Hacked, to be used as 3D motion sensor.

Yeah didnt take long, although less of a hack, more of a mod for the PC to support the system.

Not really that different from using Xbox controllers on pc tbh.

One step closer to the stuff we saw in scifi films many years ago.

That's a brave interviewer, you know you don't want to push Steve Ballmer as he seems to be basically insane.
