no more losing my remote
That's because you can't loose yourself
Edit: Ninja'd KingVamp
or can you?
Voice controlled, gesture controlled TV?
DO NOT WANT. I don't even want that crap on my xbox.
And what about the people who are too lazy to lift up their hands?
These companies never think of everyone.
You wouldn't want to turn the T.Vs off ,change the channel,or anything else on the T.Vs with just your voice or hand without they problems of losing the remote?
no, you only get half of that
No because I prefer a little something called tactile response.
TV remotes work, Kinect will impede you more than you think.
Good luck configuring all your TV settings by waving your arms about, trying to figure out the best colour settings and crap.
how do you channel surf via voice? i imagine it can get very irritating. i don't think gestures are for me, i tend to wrap myself in a blanket and don't like to take my hands out.
my other concern would be, will this device be able to operate all my devices attached to the tv or will i still need (ie) the stereo controller to change the input source for sound?
Maybe it be like "(name off the system) surf channels" and then when you want it to stop then u say " (name off the system) stop there" or something
And the device/system would be universal to operate everything connected to the T.V?
Heh, damn, I was gonna' post that.
Yeah, the lack of tactile response is going to put a lot of people off on these controller-lacking things.
in a perfect world it would operate everything, but that seldom happens. many devices rely on infrared input for certain controls and have minimal in console controls. i just don't see how kinect could controls these device.
edit: if they have a good solution, i'd love to see it, but as of right now i don't see it allowing many people to get rid of all remotes.
So when your watching a sports match and your team scores.. you jump and go YEAAAAA and it turn off... hahaha
Or even worse if your watching pr0n lol...
It seems like yet another gadget that you just go "HEY GUYS LOOK WHAT I CAN DO" but in the end is an expensive and useless feature. I can just use a remote and probably save myself a nice pile of cash.
Don't want to lose your remote? Go buy one of those stupid things that you sling over the couch arm that holds your TV guides and remotes and magazines.
What if the cameras/sensors break?
No interest in this at all, more than happy with a remote and save money.
this is a stupid idea say if your watching the world cup and you get really angry cos your team is losing you put your hands up and start waving them around like you do when your team is losing (shut up you've done it i know you have) and all of a sudden boom the channel changes
When it perfected I'm sure it can tell from "putting your hands in the air like you just don't care" from actual hand commands.
At a point you have to say the system name then do hand/voice commands...
