New Thing #188: Kinect Video Chat



Every week I try to call my folks on Skype so Audrey can see them in between her running around like a crazy person for an hour. Sounds great, in theory. In practice though, Skype is a turd.

So, when I finally picked up a Kinect unit for my Xbox today the first thing we did was video chat.

For the most part it works pretty darned well. And laying on the couch, talking at a normal volume is way better than screaming into my laptop while Audrey spins my computer chair.

The quality seems better than Skype, the sound is definitely an improvement and I love how the camera follows you around the room.

The future is now people! Please show me to my flying car next.
