Check it out with your own two eyes in my video review!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kinect Sensor with Kinect Adventures! (Video Game)
Want to check out the new Kinect with your own two eyes? If so, then check out my video review! I show the basic hardware, new dashboard navigation, voice commands, and even some of Kinect Adventures.
Note: I did my best to play and record at the same time, but the camera is a bit shaky in this one.

I'm sure a tripod would help-- only because it is hampering you using your body as a controller.
Also, be aware that the depth sensor is reading the Near IR that the far left sensor is projecting. Some camcorders use IR or active IR for auto focus.... This could "blind" the depth sensor and make things not work as well.

Some of the reviews with a lesser star were talking about unbearable lag, but his video showed so very impressive responsiveness. Considering this video review, I'd say "it looks fun; I'm probably going to get it." It seems as if you need a lot of space, some good lighting, and a clear area. I've got that; so, I anticipate having a fun experience. Those "laggy" reviews are questionable for me. There's a lot more positive responses than there are negative ones.

I apologize for the shaky camera, but it's the best I could do!
After playing around for a while, I do not have any real problem with lag using Kinect - it's very responsive. The main negative is my lack of space in the living room, if I had a wider open space I think I would have a significantly better experience.

Thanks for the review. Was nice to see in action the menus and selecting things. I can't wait to get mine in a few days.

actually it's kind of funny...the body tracking is all IR, so you can play in complete darkness. light is necessary for facial recognition and of course gameplay pictures (which adventures does a lot of, but only if you don't change the setting)
and yes, it's VERY fun!!!

Wow, great video. I wasn't sure if I should get a Kinect or not, but by seeing this video you have made the decision that much easier for me. I'm DEFINITELY getting one now!!
