For the uninitiated, Microsoft’s Kinect is an add-on for the Xbox 360 which is kind of a super-advanced version of Nintendo’s Wiimote. No controller is needed, for example, and it recognises faces, voices, phrases, gestures, whole body movements, etc.
This interesting talk by Peter Molyneux about some of the possibilities of Kinect is brought to life by Milo, a youngster/tech demo whom people who saw the early demos of the device will recognise.
Near the end of the talk, Molyneux casually mentions that Milo’s mind exists in the cloud, meaning that the more people who interact with him worldwide, the more intelligent he gets. Presumably measures have been put in place so he doesn’t then, say, take over the world.

ALL. CREATIVES. MUST. WATCH. THIS.
J.J. Abrams brilliantly traces his love of the unseen mystery back to its own magical beginnings, which may or may not include an early obsession with magic, the love of a supportive grandfather, or his own unopened Mystery Box.
