Microsoft demos a Kinect-driven armchair


Microsoft demoed a Kinect-driven armchair at the MIX11 conference in Las Vegas. This proof of concept device controls a motorized platform armchair using hand gestures.

The source code for this project will reportedly be made available with Microsoft’s release this Spring of its Kinect for Windows SDK which will open up development using Visual Basic, C++, C#. Unconfirmed reports indicate that a limited number of free Kinect devices will be given away to eligible developers.
