It is going to be a very innovative usages of the technology as an outcome of the competition. Gesture recognition is not going to be so useful to the text based users, but it will change the way of computing, computers will become you companion, like two deaf persons talking with each other, it will create that kind of scenario.

"Flip off" is ambiguous. Are you suggestiong a standardized gesture to turn off power to the system? :-)

Kinect with Windows PC seems to be able to make the Spielberg's dream of "Minority Report" comes true. With 3 cameras, if raw image data can be accessed, 3D vision can be extracted from a laptop computer. What an amazing move? 20k seems a bit low imo.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
