Right Andy but I noticed they are putting different lenses In front of the kinect on that video. Might make the world of difference. 

Maybe they will take the kick money and build their own :)

Interesting, and something I want for my multi-monitor setups especially, but for some reason it doesn't feel like the Kinect is the right base for this. The Kinect doesn't do a great job of tracking smaller points, like eyes, and I suspect that while you might be able to coax some of that capability out, I don't feel a lot of confidence in it as a consumer product, to be relied upon for use on a regular basis, with minimal errors.

Hey, Chris, I backed it, I'm interested to see what happens, but I wonder how much of their choice was based on "fastest selling electronic device ever and therefore biggest addressable market" vs. "truly best platform to do this on."
