E3 2010: Microsoft Kinect demonstration 'extremely well choreographed but fake'

Looking at the new Kinect demonstrations, you could be forgiven for falling down the same hole you did when Project Natal (as it was known last year) was first demonstrated. Like some amazing motion-sensing technology from the future, Kinect can sense your every movement and replicate it instantly on screen.
Or can it?
Actually are you playing Kinect games or are they playing you? After the demonstration of the amazing looking Star Wars "concept" (let's not fall down the hole of calling pre-rendered footage a game in any sense), its quite easy to see that the chappie on stage is merely just closely choreographing his actions to follow what the on-screen avatar is doing, not the other way round.
He's fast, I'll give him that...but not quite fast enough.
Come on Microsoft. Stop pissing about and show us some PROPER stuff at E3. Not this smoke and mirrors crap.

Hmm it's difficult to argue your way out of that one isn't it?
Does Kinect now read brainwaves?

Maybe he was using the Force to move his on-screen avatar.
No one actually bothered to mention that, Kinect aside, that really doesn't look anything like a 360 game!

His arm is behind his back, the camera isn't going to be able to see it if its in front of him, so its just making up movements. No, if he was holding a large plastic light sabre in his hand, then we'd be in business...

@brokenkey Yes the camera can detect if you're arm is behind you're body. Stop trying to take up for Microsoft, this is very fake.

It's not so much that, Brokenkey, it's the fact that in the clip the move is executed on screen a second before the bloke copies the move.
Smoke and mirrors.
But looking at it positively, at least MS have a lightsaber game coming, which is a darn sight more than you can say about Move.

It is depressing to read this. They do saw "imagined" by fancy french name canadian company. But, like creepy Milo, this isn't real. Just another concept. Is the lag that bad???
