Remember those impressive presentations Microsoft showed us prior to the release of the Kinect? Full control of the XBox menus, from games to movies, just like in Minority Report. O.K. so it’s not quite there yet, but we’re seeing progress. The games are already here (we will not be discussing their quality) and now Microsoft have released an update for their console which allows use of the Kinect with Netflix service.


This is not exactly as it sounds, you will still need to use your controller to activate what you want to see, and voice commands will only supply you with the recommended results. What it will allow you is to control the menus during the movie, very cool.
