What Is Xbox 360 Kinect?
Kinect is the new controller from Microsoft for the Xbox 360 gaming console, it is more of a peripheral than a controller that you can hold in your hand, it consists of a camera that uses infrared scanning to track you movements around a room transforming your body into a controller.
Kinect was formerly known as Project Natal
and videos on the internet showed how advanced the camera is with facial recognition, gesture recognition and a very advanced UI.

Other goodies with Kinect include a microphone so you can talk to the 360, a separate menu system than you’ve known on the 360 and Skype-like chat software called “videokinect” to sweeten the deal.
