  • From Michael Sisley [email_address] The Kinect is all about AR as well, though more placed than the Geocaching stuff we have looked at. Because it is under $200 and Microsoft I think it is viable for schools. Microsoft and others are urging a KinectHack group to build AR stuff around the device and software (all platforms) for their Games for Learning projects and the Serious Games people. There are some amazing uses already, including wearing the Kinect on the head and using it to tell distance, also a German anatomy visualization and some great music ones making the Kinect a theremin. I will stick with the Microsoft Kinect ideas as I am a Live member (like you), have joined up with Xbox Live and my Windows phone also does Xbox Live, so I thought it might in a shabby way trail after the iPod stuff in AR. I contacted the Games for Learning people years ago with my original Xbox but of course it was not wireless and no hard drive so the modern equivalent is very sophisticated, with good wireless N, 250G HDD, Facebook, Twitter and all done by gestures through the Kinect.
  • Physical touching created better results – Embodied Media User Interface Change the way we deal and work with information Distributed Cognition – Tetris Study/ Scramble Tiles Interface on our problem solving makes a big difference Play and the efficient manipulation of problems Make mistakes and recover Reflect Power of rapid prototyping for problems soling – mistakes not costly Siftables – great solution and enhances the merge object physical with interactive behaviour More than JUST Primary School Gene Expression – Complexity theory, Malaria Eradication
