Depth of Vision

Ok nerds. This is what I'm talkin' bout. These MIT guys spent a few days making some Javascript they're calling DepthJS, talk to the xBox Kinect to control a Web browser, which is really just a starting point for a broader application of gestural controls. "Minority Report" style UI is no longer Tom Cruise standing in front of some plexi in a movie, it's in your living room.

Despite this looking very cool, I have to wonder about its real value. Maybe its only value is being very cool.

It doesn't need to be said what incredible potential there is for adding gestural interactivity to Web games through Kinect. I'll assume to same goes for interactive porn.
