A chance to be a Super Hero! (Or even a rat!)
Amid all the hoop-la over thinner TVs, smart refrigerators, tablet computers, and more tablet computers, this week’s CES event in Las Vegas is also offering a window into the future of gaming.
The Microsoft Xbox team has been previewing the March release of Kinect Rush: A Disney Pixar Adventure, which features adventures from five modern-day children’s classics: Cars, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Toy Story, and Up.
What’s different about Kinect Rush is that it incorporates KinectScan, a new technology that scans the features of a player and creates a story-based avatar that can then participate in the game. Ever wanted to take on the appearance of toy, a rat, a super hero or even a car? No problem. KinectScan will capture your image and put you right in the thick of the action.
Until now, Kinect has helped create your own avatar but that avatar is essentially you. With KinectScan, you become a character in the story, exploring the depths of the Paris sewers, racing around a track with a squeal of your tires, or using your super-human powers in a pitched battle with the hulking Omnidroid.
Kinect Rush will be available March 23 and heads up what promises to be a stellar line-up of family-friendly games for Xbox 360 in the coming year.

As you may have guessed, it is made of titanium and some stainless steel¡ªthe case is titanium and the rolex replica sale is stainless steel. The dial is brown, the watch hands are silver-toned, and there is a date window at the four o¡¯clock position. The sapphire case protects the breitling replica sale from water damage up to 30 meters. Synergy means cooperative action. This replica watches uk combines the best of the old and the new to deliver something uniquely modern. All of the classic elements are there. It has the sleek and stylish dial of the replica watches uk, the concave dot at the 12 o¡¯clock hour, and the Swiss quartz movement. But the Sapphire Synergy has something few breitling replica sale offer, a rubber wristband. Why rubber? Well, it¡¯s not a sport rolex replica sale, so using it outdoors is out of the question. But the informal band gives it a more casual look and feel, which can be quite appealing to the modern male.
