Most expensive Kinect is Kylie Minogue-inspired

It was bound to happen. The hottest gadget, Kinect has officially mated with a heap of Swarovski crystals to become the most expensive and luxurious Dance Central sensor ever.

Designed by PlayBling in conjunction for Kylie Minogue's upcoming European tour, this Swarovski Kinect has 6,000 crystals in four colors. Frankly, I think the sensor's new chops are a bit overdone, but then again, I like my gadgets black, silver or white.

Microsoft's Minogue-inspired Kinect costs a whopping $1,242...and you thought the previous $632 Kinect decorated with some 5,000 Swarovski crystals was expensive.

But you can't just go into a shop and buy this Kinect. Fans can win it by submitting a video of themselves dancing to Minogue's "Can't Get You Out of My Head" in the game Dance Central.
