The Fitness Tech Podcast #5 Use Microsoft Kinect to Jump Start Your New Year’s Workout?

Jim was able to spend a few minutes with Chris Lux, past podcaster from the Home Server Show to talk about his experience with the very new Microsoft Kinect.

Kinect brings games and entertainment to life in extraordinary new ways without using a controller. Imagine controlling movies and music with the wave of a hand or the sound of your voice. With Kinect, technology evaporates, letting the natural magic in all of us shine.
