Kinect stories

A leaked instruction manual for Microsoft's new motion-controlled camera, Kinect, hit the Web last night and is already spurring a lot of controversy. The graphic shows a requirement of six to eight feet of space needed to set up the system for it to track your body gestures properly. That's a lot of real estate, but there is a rationale, believe it or not.
Keep in mind these figures are subject to change, but the sources are a leaked internal memo from Microsoft and retail listing blunders, so chances are you can take this to the bank: The Kinect will find its way into a bundle with the Xbox, be sold on its own, and the new Xbox should land sometime in the fall.
