Kinect allows Minority Report Interface

I'm glad to see Microsoft's Kinect becoming the kind of tool I always hoped to be. Just like Nintendo's Wiimote allowed the creation of many interesting projects, the Kinect it taking it to the next level.

In this MIT project, we see how the Kinect can ve used to recreate the "Minority Report" hand interface, without the need for any special gloves - like those needed for the Wiimote versions.
The software can detect not only the position of your hands in real-time, but of your fingers as well!

Really impressive, and proves how this kind of 3D cameras can become a feasible interface in the future for many devices:
