About a few months ago Microsoft revealed that they are developing a Kinect software for the PCs, but now they seem like they have also created the same for portable devices also. According to a report by The Daily, they had tested out a few prototype versions of the portable devices involving Kinect sensors

They seem to have already run the Asus Netbooks on Windows 8 with an array of small sensors across the top of the screen. It will mainly be the location where we currently find the webcam. The LED lights which run across the bottom are the only difference between the Kinect device and any other typical Netbook

According to Microsoft these Netbooks are genuine prototypes of Kinect-powered devices, and there are other interesting possibilities for using this technology on a portable computer. The benefits of this technology will be availed by many including gamers. This is another reason for the Kinect inception as an Xbox add-on. 

With its help the users will be able to toggle between programs on their Netbooks with the wave of a hand, and also pause and skip digital media without any remote. It can be the perfect solution for disabled persons to interact with technology. 

Craig Eisler, General Manager of Kinect for Windows, said that the Interactive Entertainment Business at Microsoft showed the world how one can re-imagine gaming earlier. He added that now they will show the world how to re-imagine entertainment. 

So let’s see, how we get these latest technologies influence the life of the human beings in the future.
