Kinect video chat demoed

MS demonstrated social features of its space-age camera

Microsoft has just shown off video chat working on the newly named Kinect device.

The chat takes place via the Xbox 360 dashboard. In the same demo, other social stuff showed off revealed players grabbing photos and moving them around the screen with their hands, with an on-screen ball used as a tool.

The Kinect event is still underway, in which attendees are wearing poncho throw-overs and interacting with a giant overhead display as they witness what sounds like the most mental press event in the history of video games.

A list of Kinect titles and details leaked just hours before Microsoft's event. Read more on that here.
