Another day, another amazing use for Kinect which has almost nothing to do with games. According to a report in New Scientist, Microsoft’s motion control tech is being used at the University of Minnesota’s Institute of Child Development, to help identify early signs of autism in young children. Five Kinects places around the room feed into one processing unit, which keeps track of a room full of kiddies and looks for those showing behaviour which deviates from the average activity level of the room. Wow. It is okay to be frightened.
