At this rate, Kinect will rise up and rule the earth within the next decade.

Engadget‘s posted up two videos of Kinect working with a web browser and Windows 7.

Why can’t you do that? Better yet, why can’t we do that? Then we realised we write about games.

Watch them both below.

    I have Windows 7 on my quad core comp, yet i feel more comfortable uing my XP P4 comp, yeh it’s much less compatible, but i just prefer simple XP over Windows 7, seems the only ‘good’ thing about it is the ‘attractive’ desktop.
    Really want to give Linux a try though.

    With enough money thrown at advertising Kinect, it probably will.

    @1, if you really want to give Linux a try find a distro that provides a Live CD. Download and burn the image, set your boot priorities so your optical drive is 1st, reboot with the CD in the drive, you can then run Linux from the live CD without having to install, it just runs in your RAM. Performance is not as good streaming from a disc rather than from an HDD, but it gives you a look at what it’s like, plus most Linux distros come packed with free software to play with.

    Think about it.

    This is why a dildo wiimote rip-off just won’t cut it.

    ^ Why? Its not like this is even doable on 360. Infact most of the cool stuff we’ve seen from Kinect is in no way related to the 360.

    @6 – Eh? Why do you think it’s not doable on 360? Kinect doesn’t suddenly acquire a whole new set of abilities from being connected to a PC, hence everything we’ve seen of Kinect on a PC can be done on 360 (but of course, in a game related way).

    The demos of Kinect on the PC has given us more of an idea of the way Kinect works and it’s capabilities than we got from the launch games, hence I find them really interesting as tech demos and as indicators of the type of interaction we may see with Kinect in future 360 games.
