At its CES 2011 presentation this evening, Microsoft revealed what we can expect in the future for Kinect. Along with the confirmation that Avatar Kinect coming this Spring, you'll also be able to (finally) use gesture based, Kinect controls to power Netflix, Zune, and Hulu on Xbox Live. So now, you are the controller, and you are the remote control.
Life is getting closer to Minority Report every day!
Overall, it looks like Kinect is becoming integrated into more and more aspects of Xbox Live, which is all for the good, I suppose. I want to control Netflix by waving my arms, don't you?
