We've been exploring ways to harness NUI and gesture navigation to create amazing user experiences since IdentityMine opened our doors in 2001.  We're excited about these rapid advancements in gesture and UX made possible by Kinect.  We're stoked to see how many clients from all sorts of industries are embracing gesture and these new experiences.  The SDK from Microsoft will only make it that much more efficient to experiment with this stuff.  Experiential Retail Marketing is going to go crazy in the next few months.  Stay tuned!

In addition to the Kinect hacks that we've toyed around with, we've rounded up a few of our favorite Kinect and gesture stories for you to enjoy.
