Coming Soon: Kinect-Windows Phone 7 Mashups

This is pretty cool, though I’m not sure it’ll get that much love. Microsoft just played a video here at MWC showing what they stressed was real code that allows for interaction between Windows Phone 7 and Kinect. Well, it wasn’t really Kinect-specific, except that the guy was playing a Kinect game.

They focused on the Kinect thing, but I really think they need to push just the plain phone-console connection. Using the phone as a second screen, be it for multiplayer, inventory management, or some other feature, strikes me as a really natural way to make your platform special. I’m sure we’ll hear more about this soon.

Sorry for the quality of the pictures! We’ll see if we can get better ones or video up later.
