    Microsoft's Kinect

    Thursday, Oct 13, 2011 4:00 - 6:00 PM @ Microsoft Technology Center (Aon Center)
    This event is over! Please check the 2020 schedule.
    LAB - Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    Kinect Immersive Experience

    (Open to High School Students Only)

    This Lab will be a hands-on interactive experience, focused on high school students, with Microsoft?s Xbox Kinect. Kinect brings games and entertainment to life in extraordinary new ways without using a controller. Imagine controlling movies and music with the wave of a hand or the sound of your voice. With Kinect, technology evaporates, letting the natural magic in all of us shine. This Lab is recommended for students age 16-18. The Lab can handle a maximum of 20 students. The purpose of this Lab will be to describe the magic of the technology behind Kinect, and provide extensive opportunity for the participants to ?be the controller?. In addition, the participants will receive a full tour of the Microsoft Envisioning Center, with a glimpse into how technology will transform our future lives. After the demonstrations, the students will be assigned to small groups and will participate in Ideation sessions, and develop creative ways to use motion sensor technology to solve important problems, such as Health, Education, and Energy solutions. The students will present their recommendations and have a second opportunity to ?be the controller? in their groups.
