C24 have showcased numerous times how businesses around the globe are using the Kinect product from Microsoft. Well in the Spring of 2012 Microsoft will be releasing NUads which will allow Xbox users to engage with advertising using their Kinect accessory’s voice and gesture features—tweeting the video content, finding a retail location via Bing maps, providing product feedback, participating in polls or having coupons mailed.
The video below demonstrates the potential of this solution and the question will be how long before Microsoft licenses this technology so that the solution comes ‘on board’ with all major TV manaufacturers.

Spotted this video on the excellent psfk.com website. The solution is a hack of the Microsoft Kinect product but works really well in a retail environment. We at C24 feel it really engages the client in the retail experience but could be taken a few steps further by adding Facebook likes and possible the option of being able to tag and scan for viewing at home.
All in all the concept is really fun and will stop you have to keep trying multiple outfits in the hope you will find something that you look good in.

This is a great example of a business thinking outside of the box. The merging of new technologies to provide an innovative, fun and interactive experience really blows our mind. Although this at present is a little fun the business applications could be endless. Big brands could really take this under their wing as it enables them to engage with clients at a new level.
