Your Next Laptop Might Have a Kinect Inside

The Kinect is more of a device you use from a distance. Because I use a laptop so close to me, I do not see the purpose of talking to my laptop, and moving my arms around to do gesters when the keyboard and touchpad are right there. To me, the Kinect would serve no purpose on this platform. I say this works better on a desktop or console. I have never been a fan of the Kinect to be honest with you. I do not like the idea of standing up to play my games, and shouting across the room to have it do something I want it to. Yeah, it's futuristic... But it is also a little annoying. I do not see much purpose to it. I do want Kinectimals. Such an adorable game I want so bad.

Does this mean that the laptop is going to go nuts every time I masturbate?

Laptops (i always thought) were generally used in tight quarters. Well, smaller than a full on desktop machine anyway. You don't wanna be waving your arms around and jumping around just to interface with (probably) Windows 8. It would be pretty keen for facial recognition and voice commands I guess though.

Yea,using facial recognition would be preferable to having memorize lots of different passwords for all your websites, but would it be more secure?

It sounds cool in theory, but I seriously have to wonder how well this'll work in reality. A keyboard and mouse is good enough - sometimes newer isn't always better. There's a reason I'm typing this on a desktop rather than a laptop (better ergonomics, I can have a larger monitor...).

Woah! That's just like Minority Report!

I would /much/ prefer to see it on a laptop than a television set. Of course (and please remember that you heard it from me first!), I'd much prefer the sensors to be on the lid of the laptop coupled with a small projection system. Then you could use the laptop's hinge to point the projector at a wall or a desk to make a very large touchscreen. Being able to project a multitouch display onto nearly any available surface on the cheap would be extremely useful for a huge number of applications. Better yet if there were a pair of polarized pico-projectors. This is a device I'd pay a premium for.
