If Microsoft's Kinect were a person, I'm guessing it would be a socially busted nerd, so it wouldn't know any better. I'm imagining that it would blurt out its guess for a woman's age without hesitation. Then you'd facepalm and tell it how much of a dork it is. 

Microsoft's latest patent for its Kinect sensor can measure bodily proportions in a 3D space and guess a user's age. Beyond offending women, a good use of this tech would have the sensor guessing age to lock out age-restricted games for the young'ins. Of course, a kid could stash an adult standee under their bed to pop that lock.

Engadget also suggests that it could shut down inappropriate material when a young person walks in the room. My idea is better: shut down the porn vids when mom-aged faces are detected.

'I love this game. It's sooo awesome!'

Techland did its best to hold off on handing out Dying Light review codes until the day before release. That's never good. But Techland doesn't need to cherry pick reviews for box quotes when it can pay for them. No, this is the future. And the future is sooo awesome!more

Joystiq is reportedly shutting down

I stayed in bed longer than I should have this morning. It was an unlikely occurrence because I woke up rejuvenated and feeling great, ready to take on the world. As I lay in bed and opened Twitter on my phone, I was hit by a...more
