These are just few of the inventions Indian entrepreneurs and students have created using Kinect technology in recent months.

Furthermore, this is just the beginning. This proliferation of great new content for Kinect, which we call the Kinect Effect, will expand even further with our commercial release of Kinect for Windows. We are excited around the new possibilities that Kinect will enable on the Windows platform, and the many different ways each Kinect for Windows based scenario could enrich lives and make using technology more natural for everyone.” With Kinect for Windows, a future in which devices work more naturally and intelligently to improve our lives is within our reach as the developer community and business customers re-imagine the future of computing using the power of Kinect.
