Kinect for BI?

leave a comment »

It was only a matter of time, but here’s what I think is the first use of Kinect for Microsoft BI:

OK so it’s very, very basic and only works on Dynamics Business Analyzer, but it shows what could be done. Maybe something to think about for a BI Power Hour presentation on Crescent? Although until the day comes that we all work in CSI-style labs with large screens to wave our arms around in front of, I seriously doubt it would have any practical use. Anyway, if you wanted to do something truly cool you’d not even bother moving at all and build your reports using the power of your mind – I saw Guy Smith-Ferrier do a very entertaining session called “Mind Control Your Computer in C#” recently, so the idea isn’t as far-fetched as it seems!
