Milo, Kinnect and the future of therapy

I previously wrote about the “Milo & Kate” demo for Kinect (at that time “Project Natal”) for the XBOX 360. The possibility of using a program like this for therapy seems obvious for teaching empathy or helping autistic individuals practice picking up on body language or facial cues.

Here is a recently released video from TED showing off the development in this software over the last year.

Frankly, the “gamey” elements are the most distracting part of the video. I don’t see the need for stars and points climbing up the screen when the draw is the interaction with a virtual character.
