I remember working on stuff like this at the Media Lab, now it's in a consumer toy! The Xbox being able to sense human outlines in a room and recognize how they are positioned- besides games, people we know are using it to make interactive art!

Still not as responsive as a WII, but it has cool possibilities. In the media lab versions they were injecting semi-intelligent agents into the video that you could interact with. There's been some talk of muddling with the figures in the video in this one too :)

And in other news, I have a new whole-body exercise regime! It's sort of like kettle bells, but it's done with a weight on the end of a stick... Gets me outdoors into the natural light a few hours a week too, so should be very good for my winter mood.
