Can the Kinect save lives? Maybe some day...



Recently a University of Washington electrical engineering student hacked the Kinect to enable it to work with robotic surgery. It's pretty cool stuff. For my day job I work as a photojournalist in Seattle and I shot and edited this story. I usually don't post stuff on this blog relating to my television work but I thought this story was appropriate. If you want to see video of it in action, click the link.
