Replace the Messenger with Skype, and suddenly Kinect-based calls can go anywhere.
They can start at home and end up on any device: Android (s goog), i Phone, i Pad (s aapl) and someday on Windows Phone 7-powered phones as well. At the bottom of this page is the video of an MIT Media Lab project that shows how Kinect can be used for immersive video conference calls.
The Xbox One is scheduled to be released on November 22, 2013.
