Kinect for Xbox 360 - Next Frontier of Gaming

As I mentioned before, this last weekend was all about technology and the amazing things being created. After a wonderful day at Fashion Camp LA, I headed downtown with my husband to check out Kinect for Xbox 360 at a private VIP event. The event was held in the Penthouse at Loft 7 in downtown Los Angeles. The space was unbelievable. Throughout the 16,000 sq. ft. space Xbox had nine gaming stations set up so guests could experience and play with the Kinect for Xbox 360 as they were mingling.

Kinect for Xbox 360 is Microsoft's latest edition, where you are the controller. With Kinect's sensor it translates your body's movements to play the game. There are no straps or controllers, just you and your body movements are all you need to feel like you are rafting down a river or jumping over hurdles. Imagine how a small child mimics driving a car with their two hands on an imaginary steering wheel. The thing is...that is how you control the race car game! You and your imaginary steering wheel controlling your race car on screen.

I was so amazed by the by this latest edition for Xbox 360...I have to have one of my own. It brings gaming to a whole new level.
