HTC Radar and Kinect integration shown off on video

Microsoft knows that its Kinect product opens up a world of possibilities when it comes to bridging technology and natural human movement. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Kinect will be natively supported in Windows 8 as well.

If you bring in to the picture a Kinect, laptop and Windows Phone product, you can begin to see how Microsoft could start to connect several different products into one immersive experience. While we have long though it was only a matter of time before this happened, WMPU picked up on a video of an HTC Radar, Kinect and a laptop all working together in the video below.

It is unclear if there is an Xbox powering the Kinect in the video, but it does look like the Kinect is directly attached to the laptop. Either way, we can begin to see how the three different platforms can eventually be connected and used and Winrumors states that Xbox 360 games will be linked to Windows Phone devices using QR codes.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise to see Microsoft using all of its products interchangeably across all of its platforms. Microsoft is finally blending the line between its products to create one seamless experience for its end users.

The scope of the integration is still not fully explained by Microsoft but at this time, we know that Windows Phone, Kinect, and Xbox will all be able to work together in harmony.
