Hands-free active gaming is here! With Microsoft's Kinect, an add-on peripheral to the XBox 360, there's no controller to hold -- your body becomes the controller. You navigate around in Kinect games by simply holding up your hand and swiping in the air, a la Tom Cruise in Minority Report. With Kinect, you not only use your body, but you can also talk to Kinect -- it responds to your commands. Plus, its camera scans your body so it recognizes you when you boot it up. Sound too cool to be real? It's not -- it really does work. Welcome to a whole new way of playing motion games.
