I will not be impressed until we get this:
YouTube - Star Trek - Picard "Tea, Earl Grey, Hot" Clips

Maybe Windows 8?

Everyday there's something new being made with Kinect. Hopefully once it's all settled down on the Xbox, Microsoft will support it properly on PC seeing as people are going crazy with it.

this is the most recent topic i found, so this is my question:

since i already decided to buy a Kinect, would it make sense to buy a good graphic card too?
mine has only 256 mb and works good enough for 2 monitors.

or should i buy an xbox? can i control the xbox per vnc remote or similar?
can i program my xbox to send a wakeup to all computers in my network? xbox for sure makes less noise than my workstation and notebook.

i love the idea to train my computer for understanding 'room gestures'.
