    Hell yeh!


    I assume it's all patented up the wazzo, so there's no harm in explaining in detail how things work in Kinect. In particular I've yet to see a technical explanation of how the motion sensing system works. Saying  "it projects a grid in infra-red" doesn't tell us how it turns whatever comes in from the sensor into a depth map, let alone how the depth map becomes a list of points being tracked and how those tracked points then become the skeletons of the players.
