Will the Microsoft Kinect help you lose weight?

When the Sony Playstation came out with the EyeToy, people were using video games to exercise in front of their TV and they were losing weight. Then, Nintendo came out with the Wii console and people were more active than ever while they were playing video games. Even seniors were using it to stay more "fit."

Now, Microsoft has entered the physical activity gaming world with the Kinect. It's great to see that we're moving away from sedentary games and introducing physical activity into video games. Young kids (and old kids) who spend too much time in front of a video game may actually start getting exercise again!

We've now entered a new revolution where gaming is now turning in a form of exercise. I can't wait to see what comes next. Maybe it will be some type of Star Trek holodeck that leverages true virtual reality technology!
