Jimmy, thanks for posting that!


That has to be at the top of some sort of list that Wired puts together for the dumbest ideas in technology.

Long time coming.  The only problem is the Kinect is on the ground & the UAV is just a display.  When is someone finally going to get Kinect + iPhone + Commodore 64 control out of the way?
