Kinect Web Browser Beats Michael Phelps at His Own Game

Posted by James Newton

Called SwimBrowser

Water sports simulator Michael Phelps: Push the Limit is coming to Kinect later this year, pledging to bring with it a new way of gaming, but SwimBrowser is using the same sport to create a new way of browsing the web.

What sounds like another useless Kinect hack actually looks extremely engaging in the video below, with breaststroke gestures used to go forward and backward through the web. It makes much more sense in the video below, though we're still not certain why he's wearing goggles.

Thats a pretty mint idea how you swim in and out of webpages, my only wonder is how do you go about typing? surely you cant swim into google without telling it what you want to search for lol unless the kinect sees that your in need of swim shorts and sends you to the speedos website lol

Now that is technology I could get behind.

Maybe there's a Clippy-style character built-in? "It looks like you're in need of a flotation device. Would you like some armbands?"
