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.

I can't tell if it's a spoof or not.... seems like it has to be.

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?
