Kinect-controlled concept car
Toyota recently showcased a Kinect-controlled concept car in a Japanese trade show. The car is called Smart Insect and is equipped with two Kinects placed on its roof, facing forwards and backwards respectively.
These are there to enable recognition of the car owner and to facilitate keyless entry as well as analyse movemements to open the gull-wing doors when he/she approach the vehicle. An interesting idea which shows the many application areas cost-effective gaming technology can be easily integrated with.
