More Kinect Goodness–Minority Report

I know I’ve said this multiple times, at least a dozen, but it does seem to be that the Minority Report is the inspiration for a lot of Kinect applications. Perhaps the movie was a glimpse into the future. Here is an interactive video wall that adapts to the user. Very nice usage.

It goes like this: The store window has a TV behind it hooked up to a Kinect. The moment someone walks by the display and into the Kinect’s field of view, the display reacts to grab their attention. Once in front of the screen, they can gesture to call up items they’re interested in, swipe through inventory, or interact with the models, depending on the precise software setup.
