The Microsoft Kinect can be used for many things, such as medical purposes, educational purposes, and gaming purposes. However recently music conductor Ludovic Morlot found out that the Kinect can also be used to conduct music and as it turns out, it was a perfect fit in his orchestra.

As conductors rely on gestures to command direct the orchestra or parts of it, it seemed like a natural fit to include a Kinect into the mix.
