The team is hard at work preparing for the November launch of Kinect for Xbox 360. One of the exciting things is consumers can now try Kinect for themselves at local events worldwide. One of the cooler features of Kinect-enabled games is that many of them will take photos or video when you’re playing – the equivalent of getting your picture taken on Space Mountain at Disneyland. At the end of Space Mountain you get to see your picture at a kiosk at the exit and then get the keepsake. The Kinect marketing team recently launched Kinect.me, a website where after experiencing Kinect at a local event, you can type in an ID, get your picture and share it out via Facebook, Windows Live or other social networks. Even if you don’t have an ID, you can find pictures from consumers who have chosen to share their Kinect experiences with the world. Pretty neat stuff using Silverlight and Deep Zoom.
Want to try Kinect yourself? Select your country and click “Follow Tour” on the website. You can even RSVP for a local event.
