I should never have used my cat, Rande, as a test subject in Kinect Fun Labs' Build-A-Buddy. I had a buddy already. Now all I have is the horror. Oh god the horror.
This morning Owen Good told me someone from Microsoft assured him that Kinect Fun Lab's Build-A-Buddy application had "advanced penis recognition heuristics that will reject the shape". I decided to test that claim using a purple grape-scented vibrator we just happened to have on hand.
Going live on the Xbox 360's Kinect hub later this morning, Kinect Fun Labs is a series of gadgets that deliver enhanced functionality to Microsoft's magical camera peripheral, including scanning in your face to create realistic avatars and unrealistic bobbleheads.
