I Want Microsoft To Build Kinect Into Their Controllers
Paul Miller just wrote a piece over at The Verge pointing out the similarities between the Kinect and the Notch in the new iPhone X. He notes that this is from June 2009:And this is from September 2017:It got me thinking about Kinect and the possibilities for an updated Kinect within the Xbox ecosystem. If you can shrink the technology to be so small that it fits in a cell phone, you can basically put it anywhere.I applauded Microsoft for including Kinect with every Xbox One (at launch) and then mourned it’s death when it was ripped out of the bundle so Microsoft could compete with Sony on price. I loved how it had the potential to change gaming… but people didn’t want another box below their TV and they found navigation with voice sometimes slower than with a controller.As voice assistants have gotten better, and more prevalent thanks to the Amazon Echo and Google Home devices there is even more of an opportunity for the Xbox to own voice on your TV. But I don’t think they’re going to sell people a 60-80 dollar camera/microphone array like the one from 2009.They should build it into the bottom of every new Xbox One controller.Seriously. Right there, next to the headphone jack and data port should be everything in the iPhone Notch. And build a microphone into the top somewhere. Maybe near the Xbox button.“But how does it work?” you’re asking. It’s simple. You just put the controller down. Put it down on the coffee table in front of you, or put it down at the base of the TV on the TV stand (exactly where a Kinect would be).You can pick up the controller to start playing a game and then put it down on your coffee table and say “Xbox open Kinectimles” (or whatever game you want to play) and then just start moving around. When you’re done, pick up the controller and use it like a controller.Yes, I’ve thought about the power needed. And this probably isn’t something an Xbox One or Xbox One S could do. But I think the Xbox One X could pull this off. By all accounts it has extra overhead power even while running games at 4K 60FPS . It could dedicate some of that power to interpreting the Kinect information coming from the controller. And by offloading those processes you won’t have to build in a new chipset into the controller, just the sensors.Just a thought. I’d love to see the Kinect come back. I think the technology is too good to let die. Maybe the Xbox One Z will be able to do something like this.-Creighton

Oh, hi.
It’s been more than 2 full months since I’ve posted. I’m sorry about that. I love tumblr, I love the people on tumblr, and I really just can’t figure out how to quit you.I’ve had some work and life changes which kept me away, but I promise I’ll be back. I mean… there are three (3) new iPhones and a Google event in early October… How could I possibly stay away!

The Last Jedi - TeaserWOW!The teaser for The Last Jedi just...
The Last Jedi - TeaserWOW!The teaser for The Last Jedi just landed and… wow. I’ll say this, 17 years ago I spent a LOT of time at the message boards on TheForce.net. We heavily debated the meaning of ‘bringing balance to the force’. How that prophesy was dangerous and how Anakin actually did bring balance by slaughtering Jedi, and how at the end of ROTS there are two Sith and two Jedi.Balance doesn’t mean killing Sith, it means, evening out Sith and Jedi out so they are in check.So at the end of this trailer, when Luke says “It’s time for the Jedi to end.” He means that to save the galaxy, there can be no more Jedi. If there are Jedi, there will be Sith, and the galaxy can’t handle that any longer. I bet that’s why he was in hiding. MAN, I do not want to wait until December to watch this movie. On top of Rian Johnson being my favorite working director, making a film in my favorite franchise, I want to know if I was right 17 years ago!

Spider-Man: Homecoming - TailerI have written a LOT about Spider-Man over the years. Excitement, disappointment, joy, sadness, concern… you can find a range of emotions if you look at #spiderman on this blog.We can add a new adjective to now: smile-inducing. This trailer made me smile. It made me smile in every possible way. Peter is good and happy and his interaction with his high school friend seemed natural (albeit brief) and MAN Tony taking away the suit is also fantastic. It makes Peter have to earn becoming Spider-Man without Stark’s tech. To (dare I say) learn power and responsibility, without it being a gift.And Michael Keaton as Vulture has presence. He has presence and a mission not seen in a Spider-Man villain since Doc Ock in Spider-Man 2. The best villain aren’t bad for the sake of being bad, they just have rival ideology. Give a villain a mission and real motivation and it’s so much more powerful. It’s why Magneto works so well. With just a few lines of dialogue it certainly seems like Vulture has all that.I love this trailer on every level. And I probably wont watch any more before the movie comes out in July.
