PostSubject: X-box Kinect    Sat Mar 05, 2011 1:08 am

I think i spelled that right.. t-h-a-t... yep. Anyways, my buddy told me that the kinect has a serious design flaw, and i wonder if anyone else has heard of it. Apparently it's racist. He says the technology makes darker skinned people have more troubles with it, but as it turns out, it's low amount of light reflecting into the camera, making it hard for dark skinned people to play in a dimly lit room.

here's an article on the topic. http://gadgetwise.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/11/04/is-microsofts-xbox-kinect-racist-no/ Anyone have a solution to the problem?

Eradicate anyone who is not white. LOLJK. Can't they just turn a light on when playing? It's not that much of an issue. I work in a phone store part time and we have a Kinect of display and I spend about an hour of my 6 hour shift playing on it Very Happy

I fail to understand... is this now a "you 'what' you lose" thread?
