Kinect hack turns you into a superhero
Here's a prime example of the importance of knowing your audience. Plenty of fully-formed games for Microsoft's Kinect hardware have been market researched and lovingly crafted, but peering into our souls with his Ultra Eye, YouTube user "hogehoge335" has tapped into our most heart-felt desires. In seconds, his new hack transforms the user into an Emerium Beam-blasting, Eye Slugger-tossing super hero -- tokusatsu icon Ultraseven, specifically.

We've been trying to think of a mature way to describe the video after the break, but our inner five-year-old has immobilized that part of our brains. So, in closing: He transforms! He can shoot lasers! He tosses his head thing! We want it! We want it!
