Question Newbie Kinect question

Am curious about Kinect's potential, so I purchased the Kinect + Xbox 360 bundle (Microsoft's recent Black Friday discount). I realize this is a Kinect + HS forum, but is there any particular software (demo/game/whatever) for Kinect + Xbox 360 (or, Kinect + PC if that's better) that really showcases the potential/capabilities/functionalities of the Kinect? I've seen some intriguing youtube videos about Kinect, but it's hard to calibrate my expectations for a Kinect + HS configuration without actually trying it first.

Any/all suggestions welcome.

on PC, you can try to install the Kinect SDK + Kinect Developer Toolkit, it comes with a galley of simple applications showing you what you can do with a kinect.

I went to the download link you indicated, but couldn't tell what the simple apps were without doing the full install. Are the simple apps things like "Skeleton", "Orientation", "Muscle+Force", "Heartrate", and "Expression" like that shown in ?

By the way, what's your opinion on Kinect 2.0 versus Kinect 1.0 hardware? I gather Kinect 1.0 can't gauge heartrate, for example.

Any thoughts regarding the PS4 Eye?

There's so much marketing hype out there it's hard to separate the good from the bad.
