How to Use Kinect Gestures

Learn how to use Kinect gestures in this Kinect for Xbox video from Howcast.


So there are two ways to control your Kinect. The first is by voice, and the second is by gestures. So I'm gonna talk a little bit about the gestures first of all. Now looking at the screen, you can see me down in the corner, right? Now check this out, see my hands, it's actually glowing. You can actually see how sensitive this equipment is. So what you're gonna do to activate your Kinect is you're gonna wave, and that's gonna bring you to your dashboard. Now, as you can see, look at my hand. It is perfectly tracking over this entire screen, and if you want, we can go back, and you hold your hand over the object, and it will return. So let's go back. So we want to wave again to bring us back to our Kinect hub. So let's say we want to look at our achievements. And let's pick a game, hmm, let's go with Micheal Jackson, cause we love Micheal Jackson. So it'll show you, it'll bring everything up and you can see your list of achievements, just like you would if you were using a controller, but you're using your hand, crazy. So we go back to our hub and here we go. It's a little daunting at first because you're like wait, what's going on. But don't panic, relax, and just remember to wave, and you know, the rest is pretty easy. So remember, wave back and forth to get to your hub, and to go back and forth between your dashboard and your hub, and then hold your hand out over the object you want to select, and it's that simple.
