So yes, it’s become clear that the Kinect’s lack of buttons might be biting it in the ass to some degree, but that doesn’t mean Microsoft isn’t working on new tech to get around such problems. Buttons are so 2009 after all.
What you’re about to see is called “Skinput” and though it’s not being developed for the Kinect specifically (at least no one has heard about it if it is), it IS being made by Microsoft, so to think that someday it might be used for the Xbox in some way would not be out of the question.
More or less the system projects a holographic interface onto the users arm, with tech that, yet again, really does feel like the future. Yes, it needs work, but still, pretty cool to see even in this early stage.
