Just watched this video and it has made my expectations for Kinect even lower and I was just wondering what you guys thought.http://angryjoeshow.com/2010/06/joe-play-kinect/

What do you mean? Depends on the technology, it isn't racist or anything like that. Black absorbs light.

Does this mean African Americans are going to have a hard time using Kinect?

I don't know how Kinect functions, but if it relies on light reflections you can be sure that black clothing (which is black BECAUSE it doesn't reflect any light in our visible spectrum) won't work as well as other colors.

Lol at the racism commentary.

I thought the commentary was pretty funny as well, also Spoony looks so bored while playing the game.

I kinda want them to fail in a way as well, just cause if they became to popular we could eventually see the decline of controller based video games.

I hope that this is something they can get sorted out even if only a little before it comes out.

Yeah, but his face in this video is the absolute pure personification of boredom.

I feel bad for metalheads, gothics, and punks who had dreams of playing Kinect. Their clothing will not be friendly to Kinect.

It's not even conceivable for controller based games to go away in the next couple of years. tech is here? yeah it is. Perfected, by absolutely no means.

It has IR camera and black color is not it's favourite.
