We’ve all seen Microsoft’s Kinect being used in the medical field, the financial field and even automotive field where customers can inspect a car model virtually if the model does not happen to be in stock. Well now it looks like Microsoft’s Kinect can even be used to detect ghosts – at least that’s what the latest Paranormal Activity 4 trailer seems to suggest. Granted it was used in a movie so we’re not sure if those claims are actually true – we hope not because we would certainly never be able to look at our Kinect the same way again! In any case, the trailer reveals the use of the Kinect used to track activity, mostly humans, at least until later on when it picked up something that appears to be rather supernatural in nature. Either way it’s pretty creepy but it’s interesting to see that even Hollywood acknowledges the Kinect’s functionality beyond just gaming.
