Kinect Time is my second Kinect educational game, one that has been suggested by many people who saw my Kinect Angles game. Please download it and test it for me.

The point of the game is basically to set the hands on the clock to match the time digitally displayed, you do this by moving your arms; Kinect captures the motion and my game translates it to the hands on the clock face. Watch the video below to get the idea.
