No you can’t have it, this one’s mine…

Quick! Everyone run to Meijer and Walmart – apparently there’s been a glut of Kinect sensor returns – as Black Friday product scalpers fail to sell the devices through online fast-buck engine Ebay.

I literally walked up to the counter just as one was being returned – the sales assistant told me that he’s seen a few of them come back un-opened after the original buyers had failed to secure a quick profit through online sales.

I feel another laser harp type theremin type guitar hero type invention coming on.

Now if I can only combine it with this…

..and this

…and maybe this…

Wow! This is perfect hardware item.
Alternative to WiiMote and OpenSource drivers for PC already exists…
But what about it’s connection with Arduino or such other devices/platforms?
Or you next project will be more PC-oriented than Arduino+WiiMote LaserHarp?
