How I Met Your Kinect

Illustration for article titled How I Met Your Kinect

The most recent episode of American comedy program "How I Met Your Mother" featured not one, but two cameos.


One of them was talk show host Maury Povich. The other? Microsoft's forthcoming Kinect motion control system.

The show is actually a series of flashbacks narrated by Bob Saget of Full House fame about how he met his children's mother. So by that logic, the inclusion of Kinect could work within the show's framework — even though the peripheral won't be out until early next month.


Or this could just be clever product placement by Microsoft.

There was a ton of Microsoft product placement last night. Ted looked up directions on Bing Maps, then something on Bing, both in Internet Explorer on his Windows-branded PC, then when he and Marshall were in front of the store, Maury buys an Xbox (with Kinect), there were several Xboxes in the store window, along with other Microsoft products like Office.

I mean, I'm not faulting them for doing product placement, but there was a lot of it last night. Suprised no one has a Windows Phone 7... phone.
