Would have been an interesting post from a tech point of you until you went all tin foil hat brigade on us.

It has always been in the licence for purchased films that they are only to be shown to a certain limited size of audience, this number is far larger than kinect would be able to count any way so settle down.

The tech for this is brilliant and it could have some great uses in entertainment and gaming.
