Imagine playing chess online in a more interactive way than just clicking with the mouse, now that would bring some excitement into an old game.

This is a great article on the potential of this technology. What is missing is the mention of the fact that GestureTek invented Gesture Recognition and Control with 3d depth cameras in 2000, and GestureTek pioneered this feild with installations around the world for 11 years. What Microsoft has done is to make it affordable, and put it into our homes, and the hands of a world wide development community who are applying it to their feilds of creativity.
