Hacking the Xbox 360 Kinect is all about baby steps
. Let's hope that the hacking community picks up the work and evolves it into a multitouch

: If you're willing to step outside of the developer-friendly borders of open-source software then you'll want to check out Evoluce
's gesture solution based on the company's Multitouch Input Management (MIM) driver for Kinect. The most impressive part is its support for simultaneous multitouch and multiuser
control of applications (including those using Flash and Java) running on a Windows 7 PC. Evoluce promises to release software "soon" to bridge Kinect and Windows 7. Until then be sure to check both of the impressive videos after the break.
