Ready to see the Future of Second Life Using Kinect? Check Out This Candid Video From CES.

The people in this video are playing an Xbox game, but imagine walking and flying around Second Life using this kind of full body motion capture controller. And I hate to even mention it, but can you visualize SLex under this paradigm? The home videos alone could keep YouTube going single-handedly. I know bio-motion is the future, but I think there's a lot of refinement needed to make it useful for the kind of stuff people do in SL today. Anyway, enjoy this Bot's Eye View CES video:

At current development rates, I'd say six more years - minimum. You'll see it in opensim first, I daresay.

at last... we can all get some physical exercise; some of us for the first time in years. :)

Me sees a bunch of homeys jumping about looking really idiotic. Why am I not thrilled? Surely there is a better demo of the potential.
