Microsoft Creates Voice and Gesture Controlled TV

Microsoft’s Kinect system has been used for dozens of crazy projects since it came out but today Microsoft released their own new system which has blown users away. The update was actually for the Xbox 360 but what it did is absolutely amazing; users are now able to control the entire system using both gestures and voice input.

Small, simple movements by a user are quickly and easily recognized by Kinect so users can in fact control everything. The addition of voice control is amazing as well because it is something we have yet to see demonstrated through Kinect. So far everyone seems quite impressed with Kinect and with Windows 8 on the horizon we can only guess how well Microsoft will manage to integrate Kinect; if done well it seems like motion and voice control could become the future of computing quite soon.
