Just When You Thought Kinect Couldn't Get Worse...

When Microsoft originally unveiled Project Natal, it seemed like an interesting bit of technology that could open up another channel for the unintiated to enjoy video games with natural movements of the body, instead of A/B/X/Y. Manipulating two analog sticks at once is hard!

I don't blame the company for trying something different or even for trying to capitalize on the success of the Wii and the motion-control craze. When your two competitors in the console market do it, you kind of have to "jump in" too. What I do blame Microsoft for is making this possible:


Using the Kinect's motion sensing cameras, United Arrow's shop front now mimicks the average passer-by. The video comes by way of Larry Hyrb, better known as Major Nelson. I'm not sure if Microsoft had anything to do with building and installing these MarionetteBots, but I certainly hope they didn't.

This is too much for me. If a mannequin came to life in front of my eyes and started outright mocking me, I'd pick up a rack of clothing and beat it back to death. There is nothing scarier than a used-to-be lifeless mannequin and its soulless gaze as it starts to do the robot.

I wonder if the MarionetteBot would mimick my gait as I ran away from it.
