I tried the Kinect recently for the first time and I have to admit I was really impressed at the precision and fluidity. I was skeptical at first, thinking it would be as gimmicky the Wii is, but with no remote, which was even worse. It turns out to be a genuinely good product, despite the hardware "specs" being very low (sensors, cpu). I dare say a more powerful version could be mind-blowing.
Regardless, it's still a niche product that won't attract to hardcore gamers.

I think that a more powerful Kinect could be amazing for Windows 7/8. A HTPC could be a ton of fun if you could control it with nothing but your body. Imagine just pointing at whatever you wanted on the screen; using gestures as macros to control programs and video games; using a virtual keyboard by typing in the air and adding a speech to text function for emails and documents. Soon we'll all be talking to our own personal Jarvis.

[citation][nom]Arglebargle[/nom]Great, a full body image scan with even MORE lag...[/citation]Except that with better hardware in the Kinect and a new console (I doubt they'll release a second-gen Kinect quite this soon), it'll be faster and more accurate. But I won't be satisfied until it calls me "Dave" and refuses to open the pod bay door.
