When asked by the BBC's Spencer Kelly about any Microsoft plans to allow users plug a Kinect unit into a PC in the near future, Ballmer responded by saying
"We'll support that in a formal way, in the right time, and when we've got an announcement to make, we'll make it."It sounds pretty promising, although "when" was not answered. However, to be truly useful, Kinect will have to be better able to track fine movements. Right now, end users need a fairly large "play space." However, technological improvements, perhaps in the software associated with Kinect, may eventually be able to overcome this.
