MIT Chrome Extension Using Kinect

The kids at MIT have come up with a gesture feature as part of a Chrome extention using the Kinect. This Kinect thing just hit the market a couple weeks ago, and we are already seeing some excellent applications for it. I can’t wait to see what else they come up with. Maybe a big part of Windows 8?

Hackers at the famous MIT Media Lab have built an open source Chrome browser extension that uses the Microsoft gesture-based controller Kinect to navigate around tabs and web pages. The group says the end result is like the movie Minority Report and that seems like a fair comparison.
