"Microsoft has had a multi-decade commitment to natural user interface (NUI)"

Oh yes, moving boldly Forward, into the future.

Exciting isn't it? Can't wait for the possibilities this tech will open up.

Holodeck ftw

I will totally buy that, it's much more interesting and useful as a general interface than it is for game

It seems cool, but it's not terribly useful. It's very useful for selecting things, replacing a mouse for most of the stuff we use a mouse for today, but that's really about it. As a gaming tool it seems to have a novelty aspect to it, but not particularly favorable, and it isn't going to replace a keyboard for most of what we se a keyboard for. Again, cool, but not exceptionally useful.

[citation][nom]4745454b[/nom]I'm tempted to buy this just for the "Minority Report" abilities. $200 seems a bit steep however. (Price from Amazon website.)[/citation]

A good wireless mouse and keyboard costs over $100. Add to that a decent HD web cam and you're fast approaching, if not over $200. This minus the technology convergence that the Kinect gives you. I think $200 is a fair price. This is going to be killer in the HTPC space.
