Weekly video: Xbox Kinect

By Rob Pegoraro

In this week's video episode, I show off the Kinect there-is-no-controller control system for Microsoft's Xbox 360 that I reviewed here last week.

This was an obvious choice for a video segment, since it's easier to show how Kinect works than to describe it. So in the clip, you can see me show off the Kinect sensors, then demonstrate how it works in two games--Kinect Adventures and Kinect Sports. Will I have time to demo a third title, Dance Central? You'll find out soon enough.

For earlier episodes, check out the video channel we've set up.

Got a favorite Kinect title--or one that doesn't do this gadget justice? Let me know in the comments.

 Kudos for trying to get your kids active.  Remember that government guidelines for kids say to aim for 60 minutes of activity every day.  A game outside, a bike ride, hike, some yard work or dancing with Kinect could get an hour to fly by. If there is time for TV, the internet or video games, there is time for exercise. ---Oh and you should get about an hour of movement a day too.  Make it a family activity. http://blog.mydiscoverhealth.com/
