Unboxing the Microsoft Kinect

[ 0 ] November 10, 2010 |

Back in my day, kids used controllers to play video games, and some of them even had cords! The brand spanking new Microsoft Kinect lets you control games with your hands and feet, no buttons required.

What’s also cool is that we had one delivered at our office today! Check out how the Kinect unboxing went:

Looks good so far. Exciting!

Look at that snazzy hidden game slot. Points!

Ahh, revel in its majesty! We didn’t pull it out because the wires are cooped up inside the box, but the Microsoft Kinect is suprisingly light.
