It’s exciting and inspiring to see technology being repurposed with such dramatic results. This video shows how the Microsoft Kinect is being used as part of therapy for autistic children at the Lakeside Center for Autism in Washington. Although there were certainly many goals and inspirations for the design of the Kinect, it is unlikely that autism therapy was one of them. In a world where profit is the ultimate motivator for most big projects like Kinect, it’s good to see that profit is not the only outcome, as well. Hopefully, the next step is taking that technology and creating content that further enables its use as a therapeutic tool.
