Integrating Kinect and Windows Phone 7

Already there have been efforts demonstrating the potential for integration between Microsoft's Kinect and Windows Phone 7, none better than one of the mini games Kinect has called Rally Ball where a second player is now added (with Windows Phone 7's input). The second player's purpose is to generate balls and trace their path they will take (with the first player trying of course to avoid them). There is also the possibility of a third player joining in (see below).

This at the moment is a demo and not a commercial release but it does demonstrate great potential of integrating touchscreen and camera-based modalities in gaming (as shown in the video above).
