The what? The Kynetics? The Piletics/Pilatics? Kinetixs? Kinectics? The kinnetics? Kinetiks? Kenetics? Kinestics? Kentics? Keynectics? Keynects? What’s the right spelling?!
There seems to be a lot of confusion about the new KINECTS motion controllers released by Microsoft.
KINECTS are revolutionizing the gaming industry. KINECTS enabled games, sometimes called KINECTIC Games or Kinetics Games if they are not just specifically for Microsoft KINECTS controllers only.
KINETICS is a physics term of the motion of bodies, so Nintendo Wii games are “KINETICS games” because they utilize KINETICS, the motion of ‘your’ body!
Playstation Eye games are also Kinetics Games. Playstation PS3 Eye enabled games can also be called KINETICS games. Playstation MOVE system has some exciting KINETICS games.
KINETICS GAMES are games you control with the motion of your body instead of using joysticks or keyboards/keypads. There are quite a few KINETICS Games out there, most are for Wii and Playstation Eye/Eyetoy/MOVE but now new Microsoft KINECTS enabled games are coming out.
So “KINECTS Games” are a type of Kinetics games for the Microsoft XBOX 360.
What’s your favorite Kinetics Game on the Xbox 360, the Playstation, or the Nintendo Wii?
(there’s many out there from Pilates sport exercise games to fighting games to stretching and yoga games and do you think you can dance games…)
Are kinetic games the future of gaming? Kinect based websites have skyrocketed since the November 4th debut but few games are available compared to games for Playstation Move, or PS3 Eye or Eyetoy
The arrival of the Kinect has spurred the explosion of related websites coinciding with its November 4th release. The Kinect is the final product of what we had come to know as the Natal Project from Microsoft.
Here are some Kinect websites to demonstrate this point:

KINECT Sensor Specs:
The KINECT technology comes mainly from an Israeli Defense firm called 3DV Systems which for some time had made Z-depth cameras capable of capturing information for the depth or distance of each pixel in an image from the camera sensor. Later PrimeSense company was involved and most recently it seems Microsoft has acquired Canesta perhaps to avoid any patent infringement problems over the Kinect. The Kinect sports a regular RGB camera along with two 3D-Depth sensors and mechanized tilt along with a multi-array microphone useful for audio localization which could be used to orient the cameras using the tilt motor.
