Microsoft at CES 2011 has promised to bring their Kinect to the PC.
When Ballmer was asked by BBC “Will you plug-in the Kinect to the PC, will you go for that in the near future?” He has hinted to the BBC that he will formally support PC use of the Kinect motion controller in the near future, saying Microsoft “will support that in a formal way in the right time”.
And when the Kinect releases onto the PC,the sales no. will surely be dwarfed.There is a vast,not so exploited market for new interface for everyday computing.
