Oh. My. Gawd. Have you actually played with an Xbox Kinect? I had not. I had seen the very interesting dramatic spectacular that was the unveiling at E3, but other than that nope, not really.
Truth be told I am a casual gamer. As in, I love games, but do not have time to invest in games or should I say invest in the latest and greatest gaming technology. So Xbox was not on my list from Santa. An iPad would have made more sense.
Yes, generations of digital technologists who are connected and wired into their Xbox games are surpassing me in knowledge and understanding of the future possibilities of the world we will live in. I just had no idea how much I was missing until I was in a class visited by Randy Shaffer, the West Region Sales Manager for Microsoft’s Entertainment & Devices Advertising Business Group and he demo’d a beta Kinect.
