THE BIG I: Controlling Games & Movies with your Body

Today's Big I is all about a revolution in video gaming systems.  Imagine being able to play games WITHOUT  a controller.  It's happening.  It's here.

The new Kinect for Microsoft Xbox 360 allows you to do just that.  But there are also big implications for the movie and music industry as well as business and medicine.

To check out the Kinect system, click here.

Also Microsoft announced 17 new games that will debut with the Kinect.  Check them out here.

    The Mexican Government has Shown ITS inefficiency and Inability to combat crime, it has Been Easier for presidents, Governors, Prosecutors, Government Workers etc. and police forces of Mexico to Be part of, sponsor and Protect Mexico's Organized Crime. Should Not Be surprised to see a girl of 20 years to Be chief of police of a village, it is the result of a corrupt and full of mediocrity, Government of Mexico

    With the out of control obesity amongst the children or adults in the US or around the world, I welcomed the idea of XBOX Kinect. It will make the gamers get off the couch and move their whole body, not just fingers. One of the games I read, the "Fighters Uncaged" where a gamer can learn basic martial arts, require a lot of punching and kicking so imagine burning all the calories playing this game. In own opinion, this add-on has a lot of potential. It is going to change the future of gaming consoles!
