Microsoft Xbox Kinect
This is it. The big one. Big like a supernova, a nuclear war, or Digby the Biggest Dog in the World. The Kinect is the fastest-selling consumer durable (not just gadget) of all time. It’s taken motion-controlled gaming and turbocharged it, putting you in the game like never before. With full-body tracking, facial and voice recognition, it’ll soon allow you to control everything in your digital world by waving, talking or gurning. In short, it’s not only an amazing piece of technology but could quite conceivably pave the way for new developments in human/computer interaction.
