Kinect for Windows

According to this blog post, Kinect for Windows will be available in Belgium as of June 2012. While this has not much to do with web development itself, I do like the Kinect. I have one for my XBox, and it works pretty smoothly. Now that it becomes available on Windows as well, I think it offers a lot of possibilities.

Imagine a teacher in front of a whiteboard, being able to write on it without a marker, or giving a presentation without having to click through each slide. It also offers possibilities for games, and by extension even web developers. The world of IT and computers is constantly evolving, Microsoft's Kinect being just one example.
